IUCAA sponsored Workshop on Introductory Astronomy and Astrophysics

During 13 & 14 March, 2015, the Department of Physics, Jagannath Barooah College, Jorhat, Assam organized an IUCAA sponsored “Workshop on Introductory Astronomy and Astrophysics (WIAA-2015)” as a part of the activities of IUCAA Tezpur University Centre, Assam. The workshop was intended for graduate and post-graduate students, research scholars and college/University teachers who are working in the area of astronomy and astrophysics. Notably, the workshop proved to be very useful especially for the final semester graduate (6th Semester, B.Sc.

The number of participants for the workshop was 72 which included students, research scholars and faculty members of J. B. College and nearby Universities (Dibrugarh University and The Assam Kaziranga University). The workshop was coordinated by Prof. Ranjeev Misra (IUCAA) and Dr. Ankur Gogoi (J. B. College, Jorhat, Assam). The workshop covered a number of topics (e.g. Our Universe, Basic Astronomy and Stars, Black Holes in the Universe, Light Scattering by Interstellar Dust, Introduction to Infrared Astronomy, Dusty Universe, Gamma Ray Bursts and Radiative processes in Astrophysics). The expert lectures were delivered by Prof. Ranjeev Misra (IUCAA), Dr. Gazi A. Ahmed (Tezpur University, Assam), Dr. Amit Pathak (Tezpur University, Assam), Dr. Rupjyoti Gogoi (Tezpur University, Assam) and Ms. Priya Bharali (GIMT, Guwahati, Assam).
