Update: Science with the Hubble and James Webb Space Telescopes VI Conference in Stockholm
23 December 2019
Antonella Nota (ESA/STScI) & Pierre Ferruit (ESA) — Conference co-Chairs
We announced in the last Science Newsletter a new and exciting collaboration with the Department of Astronomy of Stockholm University — the organisation of the conference: “Science with the Hubble and James Webb Space Telescopes VI: Entering a golden age for UV-Optical-IR space astronomy”, that will be held in Stockholm from 30 March to 2 April, 2020.
This will be an opportunity to celebrate Hubble’s 30-year scientific legacy and to showcase the observatory’s latest results across astronomy, but also to discuss how best to utilise Hubble and Webb, both together and in combination with other facilities in space or on the ground. We will look further into the future, and identify the scientific questions that will shape the field of astrophysics in the next decade.
You can find all the conference information here. The deadline has passed for abstract submissions, and we received an enthusiastic response. The Scientific Organising Committee (SOC) has been very busy these past two weeks, dealing with the difficult task of identifying the Selected Talks, which have been announced on the conference website. All other submissions will be accepted as posters. Abstracts are still coming in, and, while they are still being considered, they will ALL be accepted as posters. The conference registration will stay open until one month before the start of the conference.
The SOC is also busy identifying interesting activities during the conference; there will be public lectures and much more, and activities for your families as well. A JWST MasterClass Workshop is planned at the conference location on 2–3 April to help you prepare JWST Cycle 1 proposals. You can find information about the JWST Master Class Workshop here.
Join us in Stockholm, it will be a lot of science fun!
ESA HST Project Scientist, STScI
