(ISYA 2020)

2020 San Cristóbal de las Casas, Mexico ISYA


The 43rd International School for Young Astronomers will take place during June 8 - 26 2020 in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Mexico. The school is organized jointly by the International Astronomical Union (IAU), the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters (NASL), the Mesoamerican Center for Theoretical Physics (MCTP), and the Autonomous University of Chiapas of Mexico. ISYAs have the purpose of broadening  the attending young students’ perspective on Astronomy from their exposure to an intensive three-week long program of lectures with up-to-date astrophysics, both on theory and observations, led by an international team of experts. In this school students will learn about active astronomical fields and acquire technical expertise to obtain, reduce and analyze modern astronomical data.

Students within a broad range of education and experience, from senior undergraduate to doctoral level, are welcome to the ISYA2020 held in Mexico. Around 40 students will be selected to attend this school. The organizers provide full support to cover travel from their home cities and full board during the school.
