The Ψ2 Initiative

Ψ2 is the Paris-Saclay International Programs for Physical Sciences and their Interfaces. It is an initiative of the new Institut Pascal, funded by the Paris-Saclay University. The program's mission is to bring together groups of scientists for an extended period of time to tackle physical problems in a collaborative environment. More information on Ψ2 can be found on the site of the Paris-Saclay University.

The GAMMA-SN program

The program Gamma-ray burst and supernovae: from the central engine(s) to the observer is a program of the Ψ2 initiative. It will take place at Institut d’Astrophysique Spatiale (IAS) in Orsay (building 209-F), from June 25 to July 20, 2018.

The four-week program will bring together experts working on many facets of extreme explosions, including gamma-ray bursts, neutron star mergers, magnetars and core collapse supernovae.
