The Saas-Fee courses are organised each year since 1971 by the Swiss Society for Astrophysics and Astronomy. The topics are chosen at the yearly General Assembly of the Society.

Each course consists of 28 lectures of 45 minutes each, plus ample time for discussions and questions. The lectures are held from Monday to Saturday morning, in the morning and the late afternoon.

The 47th course, "Supernovae: Cosmic Explosions", will be held  12 - 18 March 2017, in Villars-sur-Ollon, Switzerland. For more information visit the course webpage.
