MMSchool: the first Padua International School of Physics of the Universe


The first Padua International School of Physics of the Universe, organized by the Department of Physics and Astronomy (DFA) of the University of Padua will take place at the Asiago Astronomical Observatory from 14 to 23 January 2020.

This first edition focuses on Multi-Messenger Astrophysics. The past four years were marked by huge advancements in this field, with countless invaluable results such as the detection of first gravitational waves, also in correspondence with photons, as well as the simultaneous observation of photons with a 300 TeV;neutrino from an active galaxy.

This school teaches the cosmology and particle physics background needed to seriously approach multi-messenger astrophysics. It includes key lectures, plus a series of topical lectures and seminars. Exercises will be organized throughout the school on all topics. Hands-on will be organized on a selection of codes. The school will be closed with a final exam for self-evaluation.

The school will be assigned Formative Credits (CFU) for the Universities.

Deadline for application: December 8, 2019.
