Australia-ESO Conference 2019

Australia-ESO Conference 2019


2019 Elizabeth and Frederick White research Conference on

Linking galaxies from the Epoch of initial star-formation to today

Australia-ESO joint conference 18-22 February 2019

Rydges World Square Center, Sydney, Australia

The programme for the talks is posted. Please check the Program tab.

Over the last two decades, the surveys mapping the Universe have made clear that star-formation activity peaks about 10 billion years ago (known as ‘cosmic noon’). The driver of this behaviour is still an open area of research. A better understanding of star-forming regions and physical processes is required to explain its rise and fall around ‘cosmic noon’. With existing observational resources, we are able to resolve many detailed questions about the physical processes driving galaxy formation and evolution, including:

 

  • The enrichment of interstellar medium (ISM) with metals and dust and their effects on star-formation
  • Gas infall from and outflow to the intergalactic medium
  • The role of galaxy environment and mergers
  • Triggering mechanisms of starbursts and active galactic nuclei and their feedback to the surrounding medium
  • The role and impact of gas dynamics and stellar kinematics
 
Cosmological simulations (Illustris, EAGLE, FIRE) indicate that the ISM and its constituents are important to understand galaxy formation but are poorly constrained. The discrepancy between observations and simulations is because the roles and physics of the above-mentioned processes are not well understood.
 
This conference will focus on:
  • Defining synergies between Australia and other ESO communities to follow up existing and planned optical and radio surveys to maximise impact and establish a better understanding of galaxy formation and evolution.
  • Defining questions for simulators to test and improve their simulations.
  • Encouraging interactions and collaborations between observers, theorist, and simulators internationally.

The five day conference will be at the Rydges World Square Conference Centre at 389 Pitt Street, Sydney, NSW, 2000.

 
See the tabs above for a list of childcare facilities, accommodation, and visa requirements. There will some funding support available for students.

The conference will be held at the Rydges World Square Conference Centre, which is centrally located at 389 Pitt St, Sydney NSW 2000.

It is located in Sydney's Central Business District (CBD) and is accessible by all transport modalities including car, bus, train, and shuttle. 3 train stations (Town Hall, Museum & Central stations) are only a short 10 minute walk and there are many main bus routes along Oxford, Elizabeth & George streets. The conference location is remarkable, a city block packed with trendy shops and many varieties of restaurants and bars. The location offers easy access to Sydney attractions such as Haymarket and Chinatown, the Queen Victoria Building and Pitt Street Mall, Darling Harbour, and the iconic Sydney Harbour foreshore. The conference will be in the main auditorium, the "Grand Ballroom" that accomodates 500 people (see site layout at the bottom), and there are adjacent smaller rooms (ballrooms 1 to 3) that each accomodate over 100 people. There are state of the art audiovisual facilities.

For attendees needing childcare services, we recommend the World Tower Child Care facility as it is located at the conference venue and offers a 24-hour care. The service is an occasional care service and Australians can benefit from the Department of Human Services Child Care Subsidy (CCS).

The daily rates depend on the ages of each child (below 7 years) as follows:

  • 0-3 years - $160 per child, per day
  • 3-6 years - $150 per child, per day

Inclusions each day are 5 chef-prepared meals, nappies, and wipes, linen and sunscreen. All that is required for children to bring each day is a small bag with a change of clothes, a hat, and jacket for outdoor play times. Personal items such as bottles, formula, dummy, and sleeping comforters may also be brought in if necessary.

If you are selecting your child to attend the care facility, please fill out the enrollment form attached at the bottom. A copy of each child's birth certificate/passport and immunisation history statement will also be required for enrolment. All documentation can be sent to Natalie Debes (natalie@worldtowerchildcare.com.au) when you are ready. Please refer the conference in your correspondence to benefit from regular rates rather than casual rates.

For international attendees, the conference will provide some daily subsidy to assist towards the cost. Funding is limited and on a first-come, first served basis!
