Training course
Greece
Paralia Katerini, Mount Olympus

The School focuses on the physics and chemistry of the galactic and extragalactic interstellar medium including star formation, and on astrochemistry from photoionized to photodissociation and molecular regions. The scope of the school is to gather young researchers particularly PhD students and early career scientists to discuss about theoretical and numerical aspects of the general field of the interstellar medium, in a pleasant area located next to the sea and at the foot of world's famous Mt. Olympus. The School will include:
three major review talks with the most up-to-date and state-of-the-art research
18 lectures covering the topics shown below
hands-on day to work on basic hydrodynamical simulations and observational data
poster sessions appropriate for students to show their work
The covered topics include:
Physics and Dynamics of the Interstellar Medium (galactic, extragalactic)
Astrochemistry (photoionization, photodissociation, molecular regions)
Hydrodynamics (instabilities, turbulence, magnetic fields)
Star formation (from low-mass to high-mass stars, triggered and non-triggered)
Hydrodynamical simulations and the comparison with observations

The School is kindly sponsored by ISM-SPP (DFG Priority Program 1573).
