Quasar absorption lines have proven to be a powerful tool to obtain a detailed picture of the physical conditions associated with host active galaxy, intervening galaxies, intergalactic medium and the ISM around QSOs. A group of astronomers working in this area has been organizing regular workshops to discuss recent advances in the field. The previous workshops were organized in Chicago (2009), Marseille (2010), Boulder (2011), Pune (2012), Marseille (2013), Paris (2014) and Pittsburgh (2016). This year’s workshop in Pune would cover all the issues related to absorption line studies of gas in galaxies.
In addition to the workshop, there will also be public lectures at IUCAA, Pune and University of Chicago Center, Delhi.
There will be no registration fees for the workshop.
