Invitation to the CELTA Advanced Study Summer School 2022 – From Stardust to Extrasolar Planets

CELTA ASI Summer School series:
The 2 week long CELTA-Cortina Summer Schools in Astronomy-Celestial Mechanics are back and in person!

We would like to invite you to the CELTA ASI Summer School 2022:
14th International Advanced Study Institute ASI Summer School in Celestial Mechanics – Theory and Applications (CELTA)
77th Scottish Universities Summer Schools in Physics (SUSSP)
Under the patronage of the International Astronomical Union Commission A4 Celestial Mechanics & Dynamical Astronomy

From Stardust to Extrasolar Planets: Dynamics of Exoplanetary and Solar System Bodies
Location: University of Highlands & Islands (UHI), Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, Skye, & UHI Inverness, Scotland
Dates: 15 – 27 August 2022, 12 days

Aim of this School: To stimulate the cross-fertilisation of ideas between the communities who work in exoplanetary and solar system dynamics and to understand the latest tools and methods of analysis necessary for research into exoplanets, solar system bodies and planetary systems.

If you haven’t been to a CELTA-Cortina style of Advanced Study Institute (ASI) School before – it is great fun – 2 weeks of collaborative working opportunities, exchange of ideas and learning of state-of-the-art mathematical and computational tools applied to the latest application areas in Celestial Mechanics, and delivered by internationally renowned lecturers. The school will be delivered face to face, in residential mode. We welcome PhD students and early-career/established researchers to join us at the CELTA ASI Summer School in Scotland in August 2022.

Funding: A number of full and partial scholarships supporting attendance will be available to eligible PhD students,
funded by UK STFC [Science and Technology Funding Council], SUSSP [Scottish Universities Summer Schools in Physics] and SUPA [Scottish Universities Physics Alliance]

The Website and Registration for the CELTA school is now open.
Apply here:
You are encouraged to apply before 7 June 2022 as spaces are limited.

Feel free to email us to add your name to our CELTA ASI Summer School mailing list to receive further announcements on this summer school and future summer schools of interest to Celestial Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy.

With all best wishes
