Supernovae are some of the most energetic events in the Universe. Recent all-sky transient searches, along with significant advancements in theoretical progenitor and explosion modelling, have revolutionised our view of the transient Universe. Many unexpected and diverse explosions have been discovered, and large multi-wavelength datasets of nearby supernovae have been collected. The key is now to connect these new discoveries to the latest models of the progenitor systems and explosion mechanisms. This programme aims to bring together both theoretical and observational researchers from across the whole supernova research field. The format of a MIAPP programme is ideal for offering a lively exchange, and making clear progress on these topics.


The conference organisers and MIAPP are dedicated to providing a respectful, inclusive and harassment-free workshop experience for all participants
