Upcoming ESO or ESO-Related Workshops
This workshop aims to bring together the experts in the field to review the science highlights from ESO's thermal IR instruments TIMMI, TIMMI2, VISIR, MIDI and MATISSE as well as those at other observatories, such as COMICS, Michelle and T-ReCS. Some future facilities will be reviewed, and techniques and approaches for observations and calibrations will be compared, with the aim to reach the theoretical limit, the background-limited performance.
This virtual workshop intends to celebrate 20 years of great UVES science and envision the future role of the instrument. Ten prominent scientists will resume the history of UVES, outline the scientific highlights of its long career and offer their insights on how to best equip it to help tackle the scientific questions of the next decade. A final discussion session will address the possible future instrumental upgrades, to balance technical constraints with scientific needs, and help to define a set of compelling science cases.
This ESO/NRAO workshop aims to discuss the emerging new paradigm of planet formation. The program will offer a broad view of the field, covering from the early stages of disks still embedded in their parental envelope to the times when full planetary systems are formed and only a few remnants of the progenitor disk are left. It will also explore the future of planet formation studies, as well as the impact and potential of upcoming instrumentation and telescopes (e.g. ngVLA. E-ELT, SKA, JWST). With this workshop, we aim at creating a more unified view of the exciting discoveries that have taken place in recent years.
The Network for Young Researchers in Instrumentation for Astrophysics (NYRIA) is organising its 4th annual workshop from 26th - 30th October 2020. The workshop is aimed for early career researchers, i.e. final year Bachelor students, Masters students, PhD students and post-doctoral researchers, working in ground based, visible and infrared instrumentation for astronomy.
The 2020 EIROforum Topical Workshop on Big data, organised by the EIROForum Instrumentation Working Group, will be held from 26th-29th October 2020. The workshop will be hosted by ESO, but due to the current situation, will be held as an online event.
Pitch your research for an ESO Press Release for a chance to make the news.
ESO produces press releases based on research done with ESO telescopes or instruments, including those where ESO is a partner or that are hosted at an ESO site. At the Department of Communication, we are always searching for exciting and important research to feature in ESO press releases. If you have an interesting story of your own that you think could fit the criteria for an ESO press release, please send your paper to ESO's Public Information Officer Barbara Ferreira via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Share your photos from ESO sites!
If you are visiting ESO sites and you like to capture your experience on camera, the Department of Communication invites you to share your photos with the world. If you are interested please submit your pictures for evaluation by e-mail.
