"Mass, metallicity and SFR relationships in star forming galaxies
using deep surveys" by Maritza Lara-Lopez Australian Astronomical Observatory
The European Week of Astronomy and Space Science (JENAM 2011) has been held this year in Saint Petersburg, from 4th to 8th of July. Our group has been present in Symposium S9 (Galaxy Evolution : the key for Galaxy Formation theories) and in Special Session SPS5 (Minor Merging as a Driver of Galaxy Evolution) of the conference. A GUAIX member (Carmen Eliche-Moral) has given a talk there on the formation of stellar inner components (such as inner rings and inner discs) in spiral galaxies through minor mergers (talk available here). Pictures below have been taken by Dr. Carlos López-SanJuan, now at Laboratoire d'Astrophysique de Marseille (LAM), who also presented a talk there (talk also available here).
"Fusiones mayores, menores y evolución galáctica desde z=1" es el título del seminario ofrecido por Carlos López San Juan a los estudiantes y profesores de Astrofísica de la UCM.
Dr. Antonio (Toni) Marin Franch has visited the UCM to parcipate as referee in the PhD defense of Esther Mármol Queraltó. The day after that event Toni has given a seminar entitled "Relative ages of Galactic globular clusters. Clues to the Milky Way formation time scales".
