STFC Advanced Summer School in Solar Physics (31 August-3 September 2010)

The JHI and UCLan hosted the STFC Advanced Summer School – The High Resolution Sun: Theory and Observations, bringing together PhD students and yound PDRAs from around the UK.

Hunting for the Dark: The Hidden Side of Galaxy Formation (19-23 October 2009 – Malta)

Chaired jointly by Victor P. Debattista and Cristina C. Popescu

Many of the components and processes that play an important role in the formation of galaxies are either dark, obscured or faint. This restricts our ability to test theories and models. This meeting aimed to bring together researchers in galaxy formation to address some of these challenges.
