Focus of the Winter School
The first SOFIA winter school is intended to bring together young astronomers, scientists, and experienced SOFIA users from the German community at a 3-4 day meeting dealing with SOFIA relevant astrophysics of the interstellar medium.
The winter school is organized by the DFG Schwerpunkt-Programm Physics of the Interstellar Medium and the DFG Sonderforschungsbereich SFB 956  Conditions and Impact of Star Formation .
The workshop will include lectures on the physics of the interstellar medium (ISM), such as basics of spectroscopy, dust polarimetry, and the dynamics of the ISM, but also practical courses targeting proposal preparation soft skills and preparation/simulation of observations. Special focus will be on the German PI instruments GREAT and FIFI-LS.
On the last day of the meeting, we envisage a discussion on SOFIA future instrumentation, both in the sense of scientific topics and technological possibilities.
The meeting will be limited to 60 participants.
