The full title of the summer school is “Relativistic accretion: theoretical models and their application to observations”, the main foci of the school are the analytical models, current state of observational data from accretion discs around astrophysical black holes and Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN), and the application of the theoretical models for determination of the properties of astrophysical compact objects from observations.
