Galactic & Stellar Dynamics - in the era of high resolution surveys
Start date: 16 Mar 2008
Address: European Doctoral College, University Louis Pasteur, Strasbourg, France
Current and forthcoming high spatial-resolution spectro-photometric surveys (FLAMES/Giraffe, RAVE, SAURON, MUSE) in parallel with dedicated computer technology allow for new strides in our understanding of the workings of galaxies, from their dense nucleus to their broad morphology. The future Gaia mission will map out the entire Milky Way with micro-arcsecond astrometric precision. The overall goal of this meeting will be to establish a framework for the next few years for research in galactic astronomy at high-spatial resolution.
