Solar Physics Summer School at Raman Science Center, Leh (Indian Institute of Astrophysics) 10 - 16 June, 2019

The influence of the Sun on the Earth and on our technology is modulated by the solar activity cycle. The summer school will focus on the Physics of the sun and sun – earth connection. The one week long international school will introduce and train the PhD students to the state-of-the-art theoretical and data analysis techniques. The techniques taught in the school shall enhance the scientific outcome from various space as well as ground based observatories, with particular emphasis on Aditya-L1 of the Indian Space Research Organization.

This will be an international School. The School's programme will consist of a set of specialised lectures in advanced topics in solar physics, as well as hands-on and transferrable skills sessions in solar data analysis.

Approximately 35 students will be selected through a competitive process and online application system. The school will lasts for six days, and each participant will be provided with local hospitality and some travel support.

The students will be selected from following categories:

  • PhD student in any phase of training, or first or second year postdoctoral fellow.
  • Majoring in physics with an emphasis on astrophysics, with some experience with solar Physics
