Presented by the Giant Magellan Telescope Organization
Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, CA
OCTOBER 1-3, 2015
A new generation of sky surveys and giant telescopes will open a new window on the nearby, as well as the distant, Universe.
The Giant Magellan Telescope Organization is hosting a three-day conference on the topics of resolved stellar populations and galaxy formation. Scientists from around the world will gather at the Asilomar Conference Grounds on the Monterey Peninsula in California to discuss the state of the field in topics ranging from using galaxies as cosmological probes, near-field and far-field connections, and galactic archeology.
A gala conference banquet will be held at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
