Science and technology roadmap for μas studies of the Milky Way
Lund : 18-20 Jul 2023
Lund Observatory invites scientists to join the MW-Gaia 2023 meeting:
This workshop that will be held in Lund, Sweden, on the 18th and 20th of July 2023. This workshop will present the Action's science roadmap/case for sub-μas astrometry in delivering the next advances in our understanding of the Milky Way. The Action will influence the future development of Astrometry in Europe. The White Paper to be developed through WG5, will define a science and technical roadmap for the development of next generation astrometry missions. This will be of significant use for exploitation by the European community when responding to opportunities in proposing future space missions, e.g. ESA calls. This workshop will involve scientists with interests in next generation Astrometry.
The main meeting will begin at 13:00 on the 18th July and will be finished by 17:00 on the 19th July
We will hold a GaiaNIR brain storming meeting after the main meeting on the 20th July starting at 09:00 and finishing by 13:00.
While we encourage people to attend the meeting in person it will also be hybrid and a meeting link will be provided here:
