IV La Plata International School on Astronomy and Geophysics (LAPIS)
The IV La Plata International School on Astronomy and Geophysics (LAPIS) was held during August 13-17, 2012 at Facultad de Ciencias Astronómicas y Geofísicas de la Universidad Nacional de La Plata (FCAG, UNLP), Argentina. The School was jointly organized by the FCAG,UNLP and the Instituto Argentino de Radioastronomía (IAR), CONICET.
The goal of the school called "Millimeter/Submillimeter Astronomy with LLAMA" was 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 was aimed to students, doctoral students and recent post-docs in physics and astronomy. A limited number of student poster presentations was allocated, which give the students the opportunity to interact with professors.
