25 TO 29, APRIL 2022.

Joint Observatories

Kavli Science Forum 

in Chile

A gathering under Chile's outstanding skies.

New dates and now Hybrid mode!

2022 April 25-29 Venue: European Southern Observatory (ESO) - Hybrid mode
01.

Chile is known to be the best place on Earth for hosting astronomical telescopes.

All the observatories located in the north of Chile employ astronomers and fellows to carry out on-site duties - also, all the observatories allocate specific time fractions to their astronomers to pursue their own research. Thus, although the life of an astronomer in an observatory is quite different from that in a university or research institute, the main goal that drives us all remains the same: the science!

Chilean based observatories have been leading the scientific research in several astronomical areas.

Featured Image

The goal is not only to have a meeting to gather observatory staff (astronomers, scientists, fellows, students, engineers, operators,...) and Chilean institutes researchers, postdocs, students, etc... to present their research works, but also to reinforce the scientific collaboration between observatories, to search common experiences, concerns, and different points of view on how to cope with similar problems.

This forum is organized around the highest impact science results in the last few years. We will show how these different observatories contributed to major advances in Astrophysics and we will put emphasis on the scientific involvement of the astronomers working at those observatories on those high impact results.
