14 th school (2018)

This year the school was focus on theory, simulations, and observations of a wide range of astrophysics phenomena: fast-radio bursts, magnetars, neutron star mergers and electromagnetic counterparts to gravitational waves, supernovae explosions, and protoplanetary accretion disks.
