Multiwavelength Dissection of Galaxies
24 – 29 May 2015 – Coogee Beach, Sydney, Australia
The number of studies of galaxies using integral field spectroscopy (IFS) is rapidly increasing as a consequence of surveys such as ATLAS-3D, CALIFA, SAMI, or MANGA. IFS techniques allow to spatially resolve internal properties of galaxies with unprecedented detail, and therefore they are providing key clues for understanding the structural components of galaxies, their star-formation activity, kinematics, stellar populations, metal distribution, and nuclear activity, as well as how galaxies evolve with time. Nevertheless, for a complete picture of how galaxies work it is crucial to use other multi-wavelength results, targeting galaxies in X-ray, ultraviolet, infrared, and radio frequencies. In particular, HI radio-surveys such as HIPASS, LVHIS, THINGS, Little-THINGS, ALFALFA, HALOGAS or WALLABY are essential to trace the neutral gas content of galaxies, as it provides key information about how the cold gas in converted into stars and galaxy dynamics.
At the same time we are notably increasing our knowledge of the structure and composition of the Milky Way. This is possible thanks to the combination of very detailed observations of individual stars (such those coming from the RAVE or GALAH surveys), detailed analyses of Galactic nebulae, large field studies of the interstellar medium (ISM), and surveys searching for the diffuse gas with and around our Galaxy.
Furthermore the latest generation of galaxy simulations are pushing forward higher-resolution, more realistic galaxies which many physical processes included, that trace galaxy evolution following the hierarchical LCDM scenario.
The aim of this Conference is to bring together international experts in both Galactic and extragalactic astronomy to discuss the different components of a galaxy: stars, gas, dust, and dark matter, and where these components are found within and around galaxies, from both an observational (from radio to X-rays, but with a fundamental optical/NIR IFS component) and a theoretical point of view (from the most recent simulations of galaxy assembly to models reproducing the chemical evolution of galaxies), with the final objective of getting a better understanding on the processes that rule the evolution of the galaxies.
- Structure of the Milky Way: Galactic centre, bulge, thin and think discs, halo, and surroundings.
- Properties of the ISM (physical and chemical properties of neutral and ionized gas, dust) of the Milky Way.
- Galactic Archeology in the Milky Way and nearby galaxies.
- Spatially resolved properties of stellar populations, gas, and dust in galaxies.
- Neutral gas distribution (atomic and molecular) in and around galaxies.
- Star-formation in galaxies: how gas is processed into stars and how efficient this process is.
- Metal distribution in and around galaxies and chemical evolution of galaxies.
- The role of feedback (stellar winds, SNe and AGN) in regulating star-formation and galaxy evolution.

Registration and Call for Papers
Registration is open from December 8th, 2014 and closes on Wednesday 6th May, 2015. The Payment of the Registration fee (A$ 500) is due by Wednesday 6th May, 2015. Only Credit Card transactions using MasterCard or VISA card are accepted. The fee includes coffee breaks, lunches, the Cocktail reception cruise on Sunday evening, the Conference Dinner, an USB disk with documentation and a gift.
The Payment Form can be downloaded in PDF or MS Word formats and must include the Invoice Number which is generated during the registration process. You can use the Payment Form twice if needed (e.g., one with the Registration and another with the details of guests coming to the Cocktail Cruise or the Conference Dinner). Please do not forget to include the Invoice Number in any case.
The deadline for submitting an abstract for a talk was February 10th, 2015 and hence contributed talks are not longer considered. Abstracts for posters are accepted until Registration closes on Wednesday 6th May, 2015.
The Conference Venue is located at the Crowne Plaza Hotel at the famous Coogee Beach, Sydney, Australia. Coogee Beach is located 8 kilometres south-east of the Sydney central business district (Sydney CBD), 11 kilometres east of the Sydney International Airport, and 5 kilometres south of very famous Bondi Beach.
The Crown Plaza Hotel at Coogee Beach Location webpage has information about how to reach the hotel from Sydney CBD and from the airport. The address is
Crowne Plaza Coogee Beach
242 Arden Street
From/To the Airport
The Crowne Plaza Hotel is about 15 min via car from the airport. We strongly recommend to take a taxi from the Airport instead of using any other public transport. Average fares from the International Terminal is about $45 AUD, and about $35 AUD from the Domestic Terminal.
Alternatively, you can take a train (T2) from the Airport to Central Station, walk to Elizabeth St (about 6 minutes), and take the M50 bus to Arden St in Coogee Beach, the hotel is just at 2 minutes walk. The average travel time is around 50 minutes and costs $19 AUD on an Opal Card. You will have to get the bus ticket for the M50 elsewhere (Central Station), as tickets are not sold on this route. This trip will be a bit more expensive ($22 - $24 AUD) if you do not have an Opal Card.
From/to the Sydney CBD (City Centre)
Public transportation is much better for getting to the CBD. The best way is to take either the Metro Bus M50 or Bus 373, which both go all the way to the Queen Victory Building (QVB) and it takes about 40 min and costs about $3.50 AUD one way on an Opal Card. Bus 374 can be also used to reach the CBD from Coogee Beach. The taxi fares for travel between Coogee Beach and the CBD run about $30 AUD and the travel time is roughly 20 min.
- Taxis Combined: 13 33 00
- Silver Service: 13 31 00
- Legion Cabs: 13 14 51

Last updated on 19 May 2015 - 4:00 pm
As part of the VIVID Sydney 2015 Ideas festival, the AAO is hosting a unique event in conjunction with the International Multiwavelength Dissection of Galaxies Conference.
A panel of professional astronomers tell “The Story of Light”, inspired by the International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies 2015.
Almost everything we know about the Universe comes from light emitted by stars and gas. The entertaining panel will describe many ways astronomers use light and light-based technologies to uncover exciting mysteries of the Universe and improve our understanding of cosmology, exoplanets, the search for life and more! Targeted for a general audience, the panel will happily answer any questions about the Universe, so bring yours along.
WHEN: Sunday, 24th May 2015, 2:00 - 3:30 pm
WHERE: Powerhouse Museum, 500 Harris Street, Ultimo, NSW 2007
TICKETS: $15.00. Tickets can be bought in the Event Webpage of the PowerHouse Museum
|Joss Bland-Hawthorn is an Australian Laureate Fellow and Professor of Physics at the University of Sydney. He is the current Director of the Sydney Institute for Astronomy and co-founder of the Institute of Photonics and Optical Science. His interests are in the formation and evolution of galaxies, especially our own Milky Way. He also develops novel instruments for ground and space-based telescopes. His main interests include reading, rowing and running. You can find him on twitter as @JossBlandHawtho thanks to Amanda Bauer who forced him on there, a bit tough for a shrinking violet.|
|Amanda Bauer is an Astronomer and Outreach Officer for the Australian Astronomical Observatory and was recently named as one of the "Top 5 Under 40" science researchers in Australia. She uses earth-based and orbiting space telescopes to explore variations in how galaxies formed, how they live their lives, and how they evolve into the diverse array of galaxy species we see today. She was a finalist in the national Fresh Science Media competition in 2012 and remains passionate about sharing humanity’s cosmic story with diverse audiences around the world. You can find her online as @astropixie and at http://amandabauer.blogspot.com/.|
|Fred Watson is an astronomer at the Australian Astronomical Observatory, where he is Astronomer-in-Charge and Head of Lighting and Environment. Fred is best known for his radio and TV broadcasts, talks, and other outreach programs, which earned him the 2006 Australian Government Eureka Prize for Promoting Understanding of Science. He has also written a number of award-winning books, and was made a Member of the Order of Australia in 2010. Fred has an asteroid named after him (5691 Fredwatson), but says that if it hits the Earth, it won’t be his fault.|
The afternoon will be hosted by Justine Rogers, a lecturer at UNSW Law and a regular part of Sydney's stand-up comedy circuit. She performed at the Sydney Comedy Festival and founded Nerd Nite Sydney in order to combine her love for facts and humour.
