First announcement of the XXVII Canary Islands Winter School of
Astrophysics, this year devoted to "High Time Resolution Astrophysics".

XXVII IAC Winter School of Astrophysics on " High Time Resolution
Astrophysics", November 9-20, 2015, Tenerife, Spain.

The Canary Islands Winter School of Astrophysics has been organized by
the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias
(http://www.iac.es/index.php?lang=en) every year since 1989.

The XXVII IAC Winter School of Astrophysics will be held in the UNESCO
world heritage city of San Cristobal de La Laguna, Tenerife (Spain)
from November 9 to November 20, 2015.

The school is addressed to post-graduate students in Astrophysics
completing their PhD, and also to young post-docs. It is limited to 50
participants, and requires a registration fee of 1100 EUR. The fee
covers attending the school plus shared accommodation in a double-room
with breakfast for the duration of the school. In addition, the fee
covers all social events and an excursion to Teide Observatory

The School with provide several advanced courses in the scientific
objectives of High Time Resolution Astrophysics (HTRA), including
observations of compact stellar objects (black holes, neutron stars,
and white dwarfs), jets/outflows as well the interaction between highly
relativistic plasma and strong magnetic fields and the relevant physical
processes and emission mechanisms operating on very short timescales.
The School has a strong multi-wavelength approach, covering radio,
optical, X-ray and Gamma-ray wavelengths as well as HTRA
instrumentation. We want to provide the next generation of researchers
with the tools of HTRA that will become a standard in future research in

A number of leading experts on HTRA from different areas and wavelengths
will lecture on the following topics:

1 - Radiation Processes and models by Dr. Julian Malzac (University of
Toulouse, France)
2 - Radio observations of pulsars and X-ray binary systems by Dr. Andrea
Possenti (Astronomical Observatory of Cagliari, Itlay)
3 - Optical observations of stellar and non-stellar objects by Dr. Danny
Steeghs (University of Warwick, UK)
4 - X-ray observations of X-ray binaries and AGN by Dr. Tomaso Belloni
(Osservatorio Astronomico di Brera, Italy)
5 - Gamma-ray observations of X-ray binaries by Dr. Elizabeth Ferrara
(NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, USA)
6 - Timing analysis and statistics by Dr. Simon Vaughan (University of
Leicester, UK)
7 - Instrumentation - I by Prof. Phil Charles (University of
Southampton, UK)
8 - Instrumentation - II by Prof. Vik Dhillon (University of Sheffield, UK)

In order to maximize interactions, lecturers and students will stay in
the same hotel (http://www.hotelnivaria.com/). Special poster sessions
will be organized for the students that want to present their recent work.

Further information on the School can be found on the website:
