About the Event
A five-day winter school on astronomy for senior undergraduate students and MSc level graduate students. Target students are aspiring astronomers or astronomy enthusiasts that are enrolled in other programs. Hands-on workshops will be emphasized and along with lectures delivered by leading practitioners in the field.
This is an inclusive winter school that emphasizes regional and gender equity and encourages cultural exchange and awareness between students from different countries. We value the role of informal interactions among participants and the consequent mentoring of students by senior scientists. Career counseling discussion groups are also organized.
