Green Pea and Bluberry galaxies meeting
The group of Dr. Jiri Svoboda is organizing a meeting with a focus on Green-Pea and Blueberry galaxies. These are low-redshift and local Universe dwarf, compact, and highly star-forming galaxies with unique properties while they are considered to be the best local analogs of early Universe galaxies. Three general talks will be given during the morning session of the seminar by Prof. Daniel Schaerer, Prof. Andreas Zezas, and Dr. Konstantinos Kovlakas. >> 10:00 -- 10:45: Daniel Schaerer, University of Geneva: "Insights on the Lyman continuum escape and the hardness of the ionizing spectra of compact star-forming galaxies". >> 10:45 – 11:30: Andreas Zezas, University of Crete: "The X-ray emission of galaxies in the context of their stellar populations". >> 11:30 -- 12:15: Konstantinos Kovlakas, Institute of Space Sciences/Barcelona: "Theoretical X-ray scaling relations and constraints on the X-ray output of distant galaxies".
