The goal IFAS3 school is to bring together students from different horizons, expose them to high level specilized lectures, and propose them to carry-on a eigh-days research project. The topic of the present school is spectroscopy and polarimetry.
The school is open to pre-to-post doctoral students, and possibly to academics. It will be hosted by the Inter University Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA) in Pune, India. It is co-organized by the Centre de Recherche Astrophysique de Lyon (CRAL, CNRS UMR5574, UCBL).
IFAS3 is the third Indo-French Astronomical School jointly organized by CRAL-Observatoire de Lyon and IUCAA. The first school, hold in Pune (India) in November 2015, treated of Observational Spectroscopy, and the second hold in Lyon in July 2016 was on the Modeling and Simulations for Galaxies Formation.
CRAL has a cutting edge expertise both in cosmology and physics of galaxies. IUCAA is coordinating major efforts to develop theoretical and observational astronomy in India.
Four lectures will be given during the morning sessions, and research projects will be proposed to the participants, in small groups supported by a tutor. The school will be concluded by a presentation of the results of these projects.
