The Arab Winter School for Astrophysics (AWSA) is an initiative of the Arab Astronomical Society (ArAS). Its objective is to give brilliant and motivated students, interested by the astronomy, the opportunity to be trained by international professional astronomers due to the lack of research in astronomy in the Arab World. AWSA-II is endorsed by the Office of Astronomy for Development (OAD) of the International Astronomical Union (IAU). It will provide a platform for astrophysics knowledge sharing, triggering collaborations between fellow Arab astrophysicists, and building a strong professional Arab community in the field.

The content of AWSA-II will focus mainly on different practices and skills of professional astronomers.The scope of AWSA-II will cover the following fields:

  • Theoretical themes: Solar Physics, Exoplanets, and Star Clusters

  • Data/Observation: How to get data from telescope archives and How to do professional observation for the selected themes

  • Data reduction: How to reduce data using IRAF and Python

  • Analysis: How to analyze photometric and spectroscopic data

  • Writing a proposal: How to write a proposal to obtain observational time in professional telescopes

  • Writing a paper: How to present your results in a scientific paper
