Fizeau 2015B call

posted Sep 2, 2015, 9:14 AM by EII Domain Administrator

Dear Colleagues!

It's time for another Fizeau call, so here it comes:
The Fizeau exchange visitors program in optical interferometry funds (travel and accommodation) visits of researchers to an institute of his/her choice (within the European Community) to perform collaborative work
and training on one of the active topics of the European Interferometry Initiative. The visits will  typically last for one month, and strengthen the network of astronomers engaged in technical, scientific
and training work on optical/infrared interferometry. The program is open for all levels of astronomers  (Ph.D. students to tenured staff), non-EU based missions will only be funded if considered essential by the Fizeau Committee. Applicants are strongly encouraged to seek also partial support from their home or host institutions.

The deadline for applications is September 15. Fellowships can be awarded for missions starting in November.

Further informations and application forms can be found at
www.european-interferometry.eu

The program is funded by OPTICON/FP7.

Please distribute this message also to potentially interested colleagues outside of your community!

Looking forward to your applications,

2013 VLTI School

posted Feb 19, 2013, 8:26 AM by EII Domain Administrator

With the advent of large and multi-telescope arrays in the recent years,interferometry has reached a new area. Interferometric facilities are becoming more and more open to non-specialist astronomers, and the Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) is a good example of a interferometric fully open facility.

We organize a summer school to train astrophysicists to the use of the VTLI and also other facilities with the current generations of instruments. The aim of the school is to offer to Ph.D. students, post-doctoral and permanent researchers and introduction to the technique of long-baseline optical/infrared stellar interferometry, data reduction, astrophysics, namely: stellar physics including the hot topics of stellar activity, evolution, hydrodynamics, star hosting planets, the determination of the fundamental parameters, circumstellar
envelopes, young stellar objects, as well as the role of binaries.

The school will be held in the heart of Alpine mountains in Barcelonnette, Côte d'Azur, France from 9th-21st September 2013. Barcelonnette is a typical alpine town, located in the heart of the Mercantour French National Park, with many possibilities of sportive and non-sportive activities like hiking, or wildlife discovery. The school will also be located at one throw of the Hypertelescope prototype under construction, which is a novel type of stellar interferometer (a visit is foreseen during the school).

IMPORTANT DATES

February  1st, 2013 : First announcement and web site
February 15th, 2013 : Early registration opened
May 31st, 2013 : Deadline for financial support
June 30th, 2013 : Deadline for early registration and payment (100 euro)
