Asteroseismology and Exoplanets: Listening to the Stars and Searching for New Worlds

IVth Azores International Advanced School in Space Sciences

17-27 July 2016, Horta, Faial, Azores Islands, Portugal


This International Summer School will cover two scientific topics that share many synergies and resources: Asteroseismology and Exoplanetary Science. Therefore, the proposed program aims at building opportunities for cooperation and sharing of methods that will benefit both communities. The School will include both a teaching and a hands-on components, while bringing together a group of young and dynamic lecturers who have already established themselves as leaders in their respective fields of research. It is mainly aimed at PhD and MSc students (although postdocs are also encouraged to apply) in any field of Astrophysics. Students will also be given the opportunity to present their own research work by bringing a poster to the School.

The School will take place in the town of Horta, located in the island of Faial. Faial is one of the nine islands that make up the beautiful archipelago of the Azores, situated in the North Atlantic Ocean about 1,360 km (850 mi) west of mainland Portugal. The Azores are served by frequent flights from Europe and the US/Canada.

There is an upper limit of 40 attendees to the School. Due to the large number of expected applications, a pre-registration process will be in place that requires applicants to submit a short CV (max. 2 pages) and a motivational letter (max. 1 page). Pre-registration should be done through the School’s website and will close on *18 March 2016*. Information on the registration fee is available on the School’s website.
