The Themes of the Workshop:
- High Energy Astrophysics
- Solar and Stellar Physics
- Extrasolar Astronomy
- The Space Connection
- Astronomy and Education
This First Workshop (organized by Batna
University in cooperation with the Ecole
Doctorale d’Astrophysique, Mentouri University, CRAAG, CTS/ASAL)
was held in the context of the opening up that year of the "Ecole Doctorale
d'Astrophysique", the first of its kind in Algeria. Its aims at giving
to the budging astronomy and astrophysics national community a much needed
space to discuss current research. The Second Workshop was held at Algiers, hosted by the CRAAG.
