UPDATES on the School

We are sorry to inform you that we are forced to postpone the 1st Dustbusters Summer School, due to the persistence of the COVID-19 pandemic. Be reassured that the school will be held once the epidemic will allow it. At this stage, we offer every registrant the possibility to choose whether to keep the registration for when the School will be held (most likely June 2021), or to get the reimbursement straight away.
In the next few days, every registrant will be contacted by email with further updates on the School and with the details for the reimbursement request.
Whatever you decide about the reimbursement, we still invite you to…

Don’t miss the chance to become a real dust-buster!

The 1st Dustbusters Summer School is open to PhD students and early-stage post-docs and will be a unique experience thanks to the participation of world-leading lecturers, which will certainly involve you during their passionate lessons, hosted in the wonderful setting of Cefalù, in Sicily (Italy).

The school will focus on two main topics:

  1. Hydrodynamical simulations of planet forming discs – Lecturers: Daniel Price (Monash University) and Richard Booth (University of Cambridge);
  2. Observing planet forming discs with ALMA – Lecturers: Leonardo Testi (ESO) and Anna Miotello (ESO).

We envisage a lively program, including hands-on session which will give the student to directly simulate the disc evolution and analyse real ALMA data. There will also be discussion sessions, where selected students will have the chance to present their work to the international research community participating to the School.

The early-bird registration fee is 120 Euro and 160 Euro for late registrations.  The fee includes a welcome cocktail, coffee breaks and lunches for all 5 days, but does NOT cover accommodation and transports.

Please note that participation to the Schoool is limited to ~ 80 students, and the participation will be granted on a “first come, first serve” policy, so we recommend registering as early as possible. The Programme of the School will soon be available.
