Research activities of the Centre in large involve student participation at various motivational grant programmes as well as organisation of informal seminars and workshops.  Students are encouraged to participate at international conferences and to get involved in solving research grants. Students and researchers of the Centre have recently been involved in the following activities:

 

Participation at the 12th INTEGRAL conference held in Geneva, Switzerland in February 2019

The conference was devoted to recent developments in high energy astronomy with special emphasis on its role in multi-messenger astronomy. One of the goals was to review the status and development of future instruments and discuss perspectives in observational gamma-ray astronomy.

Participation at the "Accretion in Strong Gravity" Conference, held in Bad Honnef, Germany in February 2019

The scientific focus of the conference was accretion disc physics, in particular studying accretion processes that occur in strong and non linear gravity. The main topics discussed and reviewed were accretion discs within the concept of general relativity - their basic equations and structure, and different applications.  Attention was paid to evolution of supermassive black holes, GRMHD simulations, relativistic viscosity and turbulence, and other related subjects.
