During the week of September 4th to 8th, 2017, the XLI SAB (Brazilian Astronomical Society) meeting took place in São Paulo. It was a week when astronomers from all corners of Brazil got together to discuss about astronomy and astrophysics.
The SAB was created in 1974 and every year the association promotes this meeting. The main objective of the reunion is to integrate Brazilian researchers and to plan the future of the astronomy in Brazil.
The XLI SAB was a great event, it was close to 300 participants presenting their current work. It is a very prolific environment for any astronomer or astrophysicist to discuss and learn with other researchers.
The members of the IAG Black Hole Group were present and exhibited their interesting works about black holes and high energy astrophysics. Gustavo Soares, Phd student, presented about “Spectral simulations of accreting black holes”, Raniere Menezes, Phd student, presented other poster with the title “Optical observations of blazar candidates and unknown gamma-ray sources” and Ivan Almeida, MSc student, presented his work about “The multiwavelength spectrum of NGC 3115: Hot accretion flow properties“.
