Deciphering the Violent Universe

On December 11-15, in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, the conference “Deciphering the Violent Universe” took place. Over 150 scientists from all over the world discussed there the recent discoveries connected with cosmic explosions, such as the binary neutron star mergers, gamma ray bursts, super- and kilonovae, tidal disruptions, magnetars, and other. The organizers of the meeting were Fabio de Colle and Diego Lopez-Camara from the UNAM University, and the meeting was supported by the Mexican Astronomical Society.

The research of our group on the gamma ray bursts, accretion in their central engines, jets, and nucleosynthesis processes, was presented by prof. Agnieszka Janiuk in her invited talk.

The conference website with abstracts and programme is available here.
