Workshop: Extragalactic Spectroscopic Surveys - GALSPEC2019

Published: 03 Jun 2019

ESO, Santiago, Chile, 25–29 November 2019 

VIMOS, the VIsible Multi-Object Spectrograph, was decommissioned in March 2018. After 15 years of operations, VIMOS has amassed over 9700 hours of science data, mostly devoted to spectroscopic surveys of galaxies across cosmic time. To commemorate this milestone, a  five-day workshop is being held to review past and current spectroscopic surveys on galaxy evolution (both with ESO and non-ESO instruments), as well as to explore future surveys that will be soon enabled by new MOS and IFU facilities. The workshop will bring together the low- and high-z extragalactic communities to review progress and prepare for the challenges ahead.

The programme is structured around the following four key topics:

  • star formation and stellar populations;
  • stellar and gas kinematics;
  • the environment of galaxies;
  • the road ahead: future instruments.

The abstract submission and registration deadline is 30 June 2019. Please see the meeting website for more details or e-mail the organisers.
