The UCM expedition members are J. Zamorano, J. Izquierdo, A. Sánchez de Miguel and M.J. de Miguel. The project is a collaboration with the Astronomy Department ofthe University of Florida. http://www.astro.ufl.edu/
JENAM is the Joint European and National Astronomy Meeting organised each year in one of the European countries jointly by the European Astronomical Society and one of the national astronomical societies. JENAM 2010 has taken place in Lisbon, Portugal during the week of September 6-10 2010. Two members of our Department (Alejandro Bedregal and Carmen Eliche-Moral, in the picture near a model of the NIR space telescope Herschel) have assisted to Session 2 of the JENAM: "Environment and the Formation of Galaxies: 30 years later".
The new Moon at March 13rd and 14th provided excellent quality nights at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory. These days Pablo G. Pérez (SHARDS PI) and J. Gallego were visitors at the 10.4m GTC telescope. During this observing run, GUAIX members obtained superb deep images using the first of the medium band filters corresponding to the ESO/GTC SHARDS project.
The AEGIS collaboration studies the structure, dynamic, gas content, and stellar population of galaxies at high redshift. Our goal is to understand the physical processes that determined the mass assembly and star formation of galaxies at all redshifts.
GUAIX participation in AEGIS is very strong. R. Guzmán and J. Gallego are AEGIS core members. P.G. Pérez-González, G. Barro and A. Sánchez are AEGIS regular members.
AEGIS main cosmological field is the Extended Groth Strip.
We are glad to announce that the next AEGIS Meeting will be hosted by the Universidad Complutense de Madrid GUAIX group and held in Toledo (Spain) in December 9-11 2009. We have put together a webpage where you can register and get information about the venue, how to get to Toledo, and how to make your hotel reservations: AEGIS meeting web page
