19th Advanced School in Astrophysics

From 3 to 7 november 2014 we organized the 19th Advanced Astrophysics School at the Observatório Nacional. This year’s school featured special courses on theoretical cosmology by Prof. Roy Maartens from the University of the Western Cape (South-Africa), galaxy evolution and large surveys by Prof. Olivier Le Fèvre from the Laboratoire d’Astrophysique de Marseille (France), chemical evolution of galaxies by Prof. Gerhard Hensler of the University of Vienna (Austria) and minor bodies of the solar system by Prof. Josh Emery of the University of Tennessee (USA). The group photo of this very successful school is shown below.
