This School aims to bring PhD and advanced MSc students up to date with the booming field of multi-messenger astrophysics and astronomy. The production mechanisms of neutrinos, gravitational waves and electromagnetic radiation in compact astrophysical sources (i.e., core-collapse supernovae, compact binary mergers, black holes) as well as the role of the above mentioned messengers in the source dynamics will be discussed in details. Methods related to multi-messenger searches will also be explored.

Learning outcome
• Introduce the students to the fundamental mechanisms driving the production of neutrinos, gravitational waves and electromagnetic radiation in compact sources and their detection.

• Bring together students interested in these topics and world leading scientists in the field in an environment fostering interactions and exchange of ideas.

• Encourage the students to acquire expertise in the fascinating field of multi-messenger astrophysics emphasizing its multidisciplinary nature.  

Students interested in attending the School are encouraged to register by May 1st, 2018. Due to space limitations, we can accept up to a maximum of 30 students. Applicants will be selected on the basis of their application.
