10th Serbian Conference on Spectral Line Shapes in Astrophysics
Srebrno jezero, Serbia, June 15-19, 2015


Scientific Rationale

The spectral lines, their widths, and shapes, are powerful tools for emitting/absorbing gas diagnostics in different astrophysical objects (from the Solar system to the most distant objects in the Universe - quasars). The emission/absorption lines of astrophysical objects are produced over a wide range of distances from an observer and under a wide range of physical and kinematical conditions. Therefore in astrophysical objects the lines from X-ray (Fe K) to the radio (radio recombination line) have been observed. On the other hand, the experimental and theoretical investigations of laboratory plasma have been applied in spectroscopic astrophysical research, especially atomic data needed for line shape calculations. This conference will bring together astronomers (observers and theoreticians) and physicists to review the present stage of investigation (Serbia and elsewhere), with the aim of improving our knowledge in this field, and to better understand the significance of emission/absorption lines for future astrophysical investigations.

The program will focus on:
- Stellar and interstellar spectral lines
- Spectral line phenomena in extragalactic objects
- Spectral lines in laboratory plasma


This is the 10th conference in the series. All materials (programme, talk presentations, photos, etc.) from the previous meetings are avalaible at the following link through Serbian Virtual Observatory.

SPECIAL SESSION:

>>>> Line Shifts in Astrophysical and Laboratory plasma (Organized by J. Sulentic) <<<<

This is a topic that is relevant in all areas of astrophysics and laboratory physics. It is certainly an issue in quasar spectroscopy which touches most research in the area. Theoretically it invites ideas to explain spectral line shifts and includes three possible mechanisms: Doppler, Gravitation and Scattering.

Venue


The conference will be held in place called Srebrno jezero. The venue is the hotel Danubia Park

Hotel Danubia park is located on the banks of the Silver lake, one of the most beautiful lakes in Serbia, with just 75 minutes drive from Belgrade. In a unique environment, well known on turism, fishing as well as natural and cultural heritage, hotel will offer relaxation and inspiration vacation.
Hotel Danubia Park is a part of Silver lake complex, a whole small world of joy and fun. No matter wether you come on family vacation, romantic weekand or buissness meeting, it presents an ideal place for refiling life happines and energy in the peacefull environment of the Silver lake.
