We are organizing the IV La Plata International School on Astronomy and Geophysics (LAPIS) to be held in August 13-17, 2012, in the Facultad de Ciencias Astronómicas y Geofísicas de la Universidad Nacional de La Plata, in the city of La Plata, Argentina. The School is jointly organized by the Facultad de Ciencias Astronómicas y Geofísicas de la Universidad Nacional de La Plata and the Instituto Argentino de Radioastronomía, CONICET.
With the title "Millimeter/Submillimeter Astronomy with LLAMA", the goal of the school is to introduce undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as young researchers in specific areas linked to observations and results of millimeter and submillimeter studies of the interstellar dust and molecular gas, taking into account both lectures and exercises based on molecular data. The School is aimed to students, doctoral students and recent post-docs in physics and astronomy. A limited number of student poster presentations will be allocated, which give the students the opportunity to interact with professors.
