Place: On line
Summary:

The IAA-CSIC Severo Ochoa School on (exo)planetary systems will be held as an online event at the Aula Virtual of the CSIC organised by the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (CSIC), Granada, from the 18th to the 29th of January 2021. The school aims at providing a comprehensive understanding of the planetary systems in a broad context such that the current knowledge about exoplanetary systems and solar system can be viewed in a common frame. The lectures cover topics related to protoplanetary discs, the host star, rocky planets, habitability, fluid and icy giants, satellites, clouds and escape in the atmosphere, minor bodies and debris discs and are mainly addressed to Master and PhD students and young Post-Docs. Junior and senior researchers are invited to attend as well. Lectures will be given by international renowned scientists at the most prestigious research institutions from all over the world. The attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the lecturer for one hour (after having taken the lesson) according to a schedule that will be distributed in due time. Please, fill in the form (URL below) if you are interested in the mentioned school (i.e., pre-register). The deadline for pre-registration is December 18, 2020. No registration fee is required.

Introductory course to astronomy and astrophysics
Place: IAA-CSIC
Summary:
This course has been specifically designed at the request of the Severo Ochoa IAA Scientific Committee. It is specially addressed to IAA staff with other non-specific training in astrophysics (electronic engineers, mechanics, computer scientists, etc.) . This course is intended to be a tool to facilitate the work of all personnel who do not have training in these subjects, but who are immersed in their day-to-day work in a multidisciplinary work environment. The content covers all the basic points of astronomy and astrophysics on which to build a subsequent more in-depth study of each subject.

Course on gender analysis in research
Place: On line
Summary:
The course on gender analysis in research is organized by the equality commission of the IAA-CSIC, and is set up with the aim of achieving three different objectives. Firstly, it aims to improve the quality of our research by discovering and including the gender/sex perspective. At the same time, it is proposed to avoid further reproduction of sexist biases and thus promote gender/sex equality in the field of science. Finally, it tries to increase the possibilities and quality of the publication of articles and books derived from our research. The course will open with a lecture by Dr. Capitolina Diaz (UV), and will be held online tutored by Dr. Teresa Samper (UV).

Place: IAA-CSIC
Summary:
There are tools that researchers can use in their daily work to make their research more flexible, efficient, collaborative and open. We will organize demonstration sessions to showcase how these tools can be incorporated into astronomical research. In each session we will show a real-life example on how to use one tool, without entering in the technical details of how it works. We follow the principle of "show, don't tell" to present a tasting of tools that you may want to consider using. The sessions are complemented with the documentation we are building with details on how to install and use these tools (see link below). Regular meetings will happen every two Mondays at 10:30 am in the room adjacent to the kitchen. We will be happy to stay afterwards for extended discussions and networking. We will get the ball rolling with Jupyter notebooks and will continue with other tools like git, conda, containers, pipelines and Zenodo. However, everybody is welcome to suggest or present a tool that they consider interesting as well. There are no technical requirements for the sessions, you just will need your coffee, not your laptop.
