Europe/Copenhagen timezone



The workshop will focus on non-local thermodynamic equilibrium and non-equilibrium radiation transfer in the context of various interdisciplinary problems in astrophysics, from stellar and exoplanet atmospheres to interstellar matter and supernova, and radiation propagation in accretion and protoplanetary discs. 

Workshop Topics

  • stellar atmospheres
  • exoplanetary atmospheres
  • accretion discs, protoplanetary discs
  • spectral modeling of tidal disruption events
  • supernova NLTE modelling
  • cold interstellar matter

Venue and Organizational Aspects

The workshop will take place in The Niels Bohr Institute on Blegdamsvej 17. The lectures will take place in the historic Auditorium A, but a video conferencing platform for remote participants will also be available. The workshop is organized by the Niels Bohr International Academy (NBIA) in collaboration with the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy (MPIA). NBIA will provide infrastructure in the form of discussion rooms to facilitate  collaborations and discussions in smaller groups. A social dinner for all participants will be organized during the course of the workshop. There will be no registration fee.
