The first meeting of the CEEPUS Astro.CE network – Multichannel Astrophysics in Central Europe – was held at the Centre for Astrophysics and Cosmology of the University of Nova Gorica on 13–15 May 2019.

The event held in a three-day scientific seminar format, was attended by 31 talented students and 16 researchers from the University of Belgrade, the University of Novi Sad, the University of Banja Luka, the University of Rijeka, the University of Ljubljana, and the University of Nova Gorica. The meeting also included guest lecturers from the University of New York, the Harvard University, the University of Trieste, and the International SISSA School for Advanced Study.

Thus, on Tuesday, 14 May 2019, guest lecturer Glennys Farrar from the University of New York gave a lecture on his participation in studies devoted to elementary particle physics, cosmology and dark matter physics. On the same day, within the framework of the Cycle of Scientific Evenings, a lecture was given by Christine Jones Forman from the Harvard University devoted to the invisible Universe studies. On the final day of the meeting, 15 May 2019, William Forman from the Harvard University spoke about the role of supermassive black holes in the centres of galaxies with an emphasis on the newly photographed black hole in the galaxy M87.
