Each year, the event series of the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) focuses on a different field of astrophysical research. This year, it's about the processes that influence the formation of galaxies.

"The 15th Thinkshop brings leading international experts and students working in both Galactic and extragalactic astronomy together. They will discuss the different components of a galaxy - stars, gas, non-thermal components, dust, and dark matter -  and where these components are found within and around galaxies, from both an observational and a theoretical point of view. The final objective is getting a better understanding on the feedback processes that rule the evolution of galaxies," explains Prof. Dr. Christoph Pfrommer, head of the Cosmology and High-Energy Astrophysics section.
