The 2016 Beijing-Nanjing Bilateral Astrophysics Workshop Held at KIAA


On May 9-10, 2016, the Kavli Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics hosted the second annual Beijing-Nanjing Bilateral Astrophysics Workshop. The workshop was held jointly with the PKU Department of Astronomy, Nanjing University, and Purple Mountain Observatory. The workshop aims to strengthen ties between the above-mentioned institutes in Beijing and Nanjing, to encourage new friendships, and to provide a platform for future collaborations.


A wide range of astrophysical topics was covered, including the Sun, the solar system, exoplanets, stars and stellar populations, supermassive black holes and AGNs, large-scale structure, galaxy formation and evolution, high-energy astrophysics and compact objects. Each topic had a lively debate. The Beijing-Nanjing Bilateral Astrophysics Workshop is an annual event hosted by Peking University, Nanjing University, or Purple Mountain Observatory to enable open discussion of issues of common interest in the community.


The workshop organized by Thijs Kouwenhoven and Shuyan Liu at Peking University.
