12th Serbian Conference on Spectral Line Shapes in Astrophysics
Vrdnik, Serbia, June 3-7, 2019

Scientific Rationale

The spectral lines, their widths, and, more generally, the 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 kinematic conditions. Therefore, in astrophysical objects the lines from X-ray (e.g. Fe Ka) to the radio (e.g., the radio recombination lines) wavelength range have been observed. On the other hand, the experimental and theoretical investigations of laboratory plasma have been used in spectroscopic astrophysical research; in particular, the same atomic data are needed for line-shape calculations. This conference will bring together astronomers (observers and theoreticians) and physicists from Serbia and elsewhere to review the present stage of research, 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:

This is the 12th conference in the series. The official website of the conference is http://servo.aob.rs/scslsa12/ or http://www.scslsa.matf.bg.ac.rs. All materials (programme, talks, presentations, photos, etc.) from the previous meetings are available at http://servo.aob.rs/eeditions/SCSLSA.php through Serbian Virtual Observatory (http://servo.aob.rs).

The 5SLSP (Spectral Line Shapes in Plasmas) code comparison meeting will be held in the same venue place, before 12th SCSLSA Conference. More information available on the meeting website or on mirror site.

In cooperation with Open Astronomy we will organize


"Broad lines in AGNs: The physics of emission gas in the vicinity of super-massive black hole" (In memory of the life and work of dr Alla Ivanovna Shapovalova).
