End Date
An RAS Specialist Discussion Meeting organised by Karen Masters(Portsmouth), Haley Gomez (Cardiff)Contact: Karen Masters,Haley Gomez In this era of astronomy there are a large number of successful, ongoing or planned major extragalactic surveys covering large fractions of the sky and all parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. Many more such surveys will almost certainly be initiated in the coming years as astronomers from across the globe work together to further our understanding of the evolution of galaxies in our Universe. In this Specialist Discussion we'll bring together national and internationally leading astronomers working on extragalactic surveys in all parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. Invited talks will be given by Prof. Martha Haynes (Cornell University), Dr Loretta Dunne (Cardiff/Edinbrgh), Dr. Amelie Saintonge (UCL), Dr. Anna Scaife (Manchester), Dr Vivienne Wild (St Andrews). We have room for a small number of contributed talks: if you are interested please submit an abstract via our RAS meeting website
