International Meeting on Galaxy evolution in Potsdam

The International Conference on the "Evolution of galaxies, their central black holes and their large-scale environment" was held from 20th to 24th of September in Potsdam, a city 30 km away to the south-west from Berlin (Germany). Mercedes Prieto (one of main collaborators at the IAC) and Carmen Eliche-Moral (GUAIX member) have attended the conference, where they presented their more recent results on the evolution of massive early-type galaxies through major galaxy mergers from both theoretical (poster available here) and observational (poster also available here) perspectives.

IX Meeting of the Astronomical Spanish Society

The Astronomical Spanish Society (Sociedad Española de Astronomía, or SEA) celebrates a National Meeting each two years, in which Spanish astrophysicists and astronomers expose their recent work. This year, the IX Scientific Meeting of the SEA has been held in Madrid, from 13 to 17 September, in the "Campus Central del Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas". Many GUAIX members have been involved in it as Scientific and Local Organizing Committees. The most recent results on Extragalactic Astronomy and Astronomical Instrumentation of the group have been presented through several talks and posters (the abstracts of talks and posters are available).

JENAM 2010, Joint European and National Astronomy Meeting

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".
