2002 ESO/MPA/MPE Workshop
"FROM TWILIGHT TO HIGHLIGHT":
The Physics of Supernovae
July 29-31, 2002
Garching near Munich, Germany
Contact E-Mail of the LOC:
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
- Explosion Physics
- Spectra and Lightcurves
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.
