About the Authors
  • Star clusters and black holes are moving into the focus of high resolution astrophysics, computationally as well as observationally. For the first time, observations in many regions of the electromagnetic spectrum are converging with theoretical modelling and computer simulations. These cosmological and galaxy formation models reach down to the supermassive black hole level and follow their formation and growth in the centres of galaxies, by gas and star accretion. IAU Symposium 312 brings together experts on high resolution observations as well as theoretical modelling and computational simulations, who present their research on star clusters, black holes and their interrelations, and gravitational wave astrophysics. IAU S312 continues the tradition of IAU symposia on stellar dynamics and related areas, allowing interested graduate students and researchers to access the current state of these fields.

    • The first IAU Symposium in the field to take place in China, attracting a large number of international scientists as well as many domestic researchers and students
    • Presents the latest research from experts on high resolution observations, theoretical modelling and computational simulations
    • Explores new connections with gravitational wave astrophysics and multi-messenger astrophysics
