We are proud to announce that the 35th International School for Young Astronomers (ISYA 2013) will take place on 25 August until 14 September 2013 in Bandung West Java – Indonesia, commemorating 50th anniversary of Indonesia National Institute of Aeronautics and Space (LAPAN). ISYA 2013 will be organized by joint committee of Space Science Center of LAPAN and International Astronomical Union (IAU), together with Astronomy Division, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB).
ISYA seeks to broaden the participant perspective on astronomy by lectures from an international faculty on selected topics of astronomy, space science, seminars, practical exercises and observations as well as exchange of experiences. The goal of the school is both to give students ideas of observational projects in modern astronomical fields and to give them technical background in planning, proposing, obtaining, reducing and analyzing astronomical data. The scientific topics covered by ISYA are: space weather, space science, cosmology, galactic astronomy, origin and evolution of galaxies, space observation and instrumentations (radio and optic).
The school will be conducted in Bandung, home for many research and academic institutes in Indonesia including Space Science Center of LAPAN and Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB). Space Science Center of LAPAN is well established institute for space researches in South East Asia region and have run various conferences and workshops before. LAPAN has also run space weather observation located in Sumedang observatory. Near this city, there is also Bosscha Observatory, a well astronomical observatory with long research and academic tradition which play important roles in astronomical development in Indonesia and in the region. With academic support from Astronomy Division, Institut Teknologi Bandung, Bosscha observatory has lead astronomical research activities in Indonesia.
ISYA 2013 invites the participation of young astronomers mainly, but not exclusively, from astronomically developing countries. Participants should generally have finished first degree studies, particularly on astronomy and physics. Participants can come from small institution so that they are advanced in one topic but they must start at a BSc level for most other topics in astronomy.
