The aim of the workshop, jointly organized by ESO, MPA and
MPE, 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.
Venue & Accommodation
The conference will be held at the Garching
("Forschungsgelände") , which is about 15
minutes walking distance outside of Garching, which is located 15 km
north of Munich.
All lectures will be given in the lecture hall of the Institute of Plasma
Physics (IPP, D2 building). The auditorium is newly refurnished, and
allows computer assisted presentations. Please find the abstracts for
the oral presentations in the Abstract Booklet.
Posters will be shown on the first floor of the IPP D2 building. The
individual posters are numbered in the abstract booklet and will be
displayed according to their numbers.
Accommodation will be in hotels in Garching. At this moment we have
made pre-reservations for 90 rooms.
- Explosion Physics
- Spectra and Lightcurves
- Supernovae and their environment
For every topic there are invited reviews (40 min + 10 min for
discussion). Per review there will be about 4 contributed talks
(typically 20 min + 5 min for discussion) and also poster
sessions to be
selected by the scientific organizing commitee.
Proceedings will be published.
