First Announcement

The aim of the conference is to discuss our present knowledge of the physics of supernovae including both, thermonuclear explosions and those triggered by the core-collapse of massive stars.

The main emphasis will be on the events and their direct observable consequences, such as spectra and light curves. We hope to bring together theorists and observers to explore the potentials of future telescope projects and high-performance computing as well to resolve the still existing puzzles.


We will have invited reviews, targeted and contributed talks to be selected by the scientific organizing commitee and possibly also poster sessions.

Scientific organizing commitee:

Claes Fransson, Wolfgang Hillebrandt, Bruno Leibundgut, Ken Nomoto, Marc Phillips, Brian Schmidt, Stan Woosley

Local organizing commitee:

Wolfgang Hillebrandt (Chair), Bruno Leibundgut (Co-Chair), Roland Diehl, Thomas Janka, Ewald Müller, Ferdinando Patat, Markus Rampp, Alvio Renzini, Cornelia Rickl (Secretary)

Venue & Accommodation:

The conference will be held at the Garching campus, which is about 15 minutes walking distance outside of Garching, which is located 15 km north of Munich.

Accommodation will be in hotels in Garching. At this moment we have made pre-reservations for 90 rooms.
