The KMOS@5 workshop will bring together scientists working on all areas of star and galaxy formation using near-infrared IFU spectroscopy. KMOS's five-year milestone offers a perfect opportunity to assess the impact of this instrument on its core science cases and to develop new strategies and programmes, also in preparation for future IFU instruments.

Science topics include:

  • Probing galaxy formation by tracing their star formation history, metallicity, morphology and kinematics over cosmic time.
  • Stellar populations: from the youth paradox in the central Milky Way to the metallicity and dynamics of stellar clusters.
  • Active galactic nuclei (AGN) and their connection to the host galaxy – tracing feedback in action.

Practical tutorials will be offered on Thursday afternoon (6 December) with hands-on sessions dedicated to KMOS data reduction. The abstract submission deadline is 16 July 2018. More information can be found via the workshop webpage.
