From the 22nd to the 24th of February 2010, the Max-Planck-Institut für Astronomie in Heidelberg hosted an international meeting focused on the interplay between star formation and the interstellar medium (ISM). The central topic of the workshop was the still debated nature of the tight correlation between infrared and radio emission in galaxies, although other more general properties of the ISM were also discussed. GUAIX member Juan Carlos Muñoz-Mateos gave a talk describing the radial distribution of dust properties in the galaxies of the Spitzer Infrared Nearby Galaxies Survey (SINGS).
A HST/WFC3 Multi-cycle Treasury Program, led by Sandy Faber, has been awarded to the AEGIS collaboration. We will now be able to add a chunk of high-resolution, supremely sensitive J and H band imaging and ACS parallels to the fantastic existing sets of data in our favorite regions of sky, including the EGS. In Groth, this will amount to a contiguous region of 3x15 WFC3 tiles or about 200 sq arcmins.

From 20th to 23rd of October 2009, the III Consolider-GTC meeting was held in the thousand-year-old city of Cádiz. Nearly 100 project members assisted the encounter in the Hotel Atlántico - Parador de Cádiz. The meeting, funded by the CONSOLIDER INGENIO-2010 program of the MICINN, allowed the project members to expose and discuss the proposals and projects related to the scientific exploitation of the Spanish 10m telescope GTC, as well as to enable collaborations between different research groups inside the project.
