>> 18th Heidelberg Summer School <<
“Unraveling Galaxy Evolution with JWST”
The school is organized for early-career scientists and will take place on September 4 – 8.
It will focus on the most relevant aspects of galaxy evolution addressed by JWST, from nearby to the most distant galaxies.
JWST revealed surprises from its first images and is already
revolutionizing many fields of astrophysics.
The school will give the participants an overview of what we have learned about galaxy evolution in the first year of JWST observations, the emerging challenges, and the opportunity to work with JWST data guided by world-renowned experts.
The topics include an overview of JWST, the physics of nearby galaxies, the role of AGN feedback, the cosmic noon, and the high-z Universe.
The lectures will be accompanied by hands-on sessions and talks highlighting recent scientific results.
Invited lecturers are:
Steve Finkelstein (Univ. Texas Austin)
Adam Leroy (Ohio State Univ.)
Nora Lützgendorf (ESA)
Alice Shapley (UCLA)
Andrey Vayner (Johns Hopkins Univ.)
Hands-on session tutors are:
