Organizing institutions

Istituto Ricerche Solari Locarno (IRSOL); Institute of Computational Science (ICS) of the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI); Foundations in Mathematics and Informatics for Computer Simulations in Science and Engineering (FoMICS)

Main category Natural Sciences (Astrophysics and Astrononmy)
Conference/Workshop objectives
This school is intended to provide PhD students and early career researchers with competence and skills for the interpretation of spectropolarimetric observational data with the help of synthetic data from numerical simulations. The school program introduces techniques and practical examples for the production of virtual (synthetic) data and comparison to real observational data, photospheric and chromospheric. This includes hands-on activities with spectropolarimetric radiative transfer codes and handling of simulation data. It also provides insights into the world of realistic numerical simulations and their limits including a view on supercomputing and the CSCS supercomputing center. Access to and use of observational polarimetric data and techniques of high precision polarimetry is also subject of the school.
