Coordinated Surveys of the Southern Sky (CS3), Garching, 14-18 November 2022

Published: 21 Jul 2022

The European Southern Observatory (ESO) and the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) Observatory are jointly organising a workshop with the main goal of maximising the science impact of surveys conducted by both organisation’s facilities.  The aims of the workshop are to raise awareness across the respective communities of survey capabilities and to build liaisons in preparation of synergetic surveys. To achieve this, the workshop will have sessions focussing on planned surveys and upcoming survey facilities, including SKA pathfinder and precursor instruments as well as the SKA, and ESO’s optical, near infrared and mm facilities. It will cover a variety of research areas, from transients and Galactic star formation to galaxy evolution and cosmology. In addition, ample time will be reserved for more focussed discussion sessions to forge synergies between different teams and develop plans for collaborative surveys.

The workshop will be held at the ESO headquarters in Garching near Munich, from 14 to 18 November 2022 and will allow virtual as well as in-person participation. A first announcement, including details on the exact format, information on contributed presentations etc will be circulated soon.
