CPK13 Cologne-Prague Workshop -
Galactic Nuclei From Observational Challenges to Relativistic Modeling

06 to 08 August 2013

The Cologne-Prague Workshop will be hosted this year by the Astrophysik Kiel group at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel.

The idea of the meeting is to initiate a strengthened relation between the associated groups - especially the Cologne and Prague group and to establish crosslinks to the SFB956: Conditions and Impact of Star Formation - Astrophysics, Instrumentation and Laboratory Research.

The meeting is supported by the DFG and the participating institutes.

Kiel is the capital city of the northernmost of the 16 German states, Schleswig-Holstein,with almost 250.000 inhabitants. It is a port city on the Baltic Sea, and the largest German cruise harbor. It is located about 90 km northeast of Hamburg, and about 60 km south of the German-Danish border. Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel (CAU or University of Kiel, for short) has been founded in 1665. Today it is a university offering a full suite of schools to about 25.000 students. The workshop will be held in one of the lecture rooms of the physics center of CAU. The idea is to arrive in Kiel on Monday, 05 August 2013. The scientific sessions will start in the morning of 06 August. The last session will end at noon on Thursday, 08 August, allowing you to travel home in the afternoon of the same day. We will have morning sessions from 9am to noon on all three days, and an afternoon session from 2pm to 5pm on Tuesday. There will be only oral presentation of 30 minutes, including discussion. On Wednesday afternoon an excursion is planned. The (preliminary) topics of the sessions are:

  1. The Galactic Center
  2. (A)GN and starbursts
  3. Accretion
  4. Relativity in action

There will be a conference fee of 100 Euros, covering the organizational costs and the excursion. The conference fee is to be paid in cash (Euros) on the first day of the workshop.
