Astrosoma 2019: 15th School of Modern Astrophysics

This international summer school is primarily aimed at PhD students. Young researchers and outstanding undergraduate students are also welcome. It will feature lectures and practical sessions on the cutting-edge problems of physical cosmology: the early universe, the era of reionization, the formation of the universe’s large-scale structure, dark matter, cosmic microwave background radiation and the insights it might provide into the earliest stages of the history of the universe. The talks will be delivered by renowned scientists from leading research centers in Great Britain, the United States, and Germany. The school stays true to its ambition of promoting science among students, expanding their perspective, and engaging them in research at the forefront of astrophysics. 

The event is organized by the physics and astrophysics problems department, which is part of the Phystech School of Fundamental and Applied Physics.
