“Multiwavelength Dissection of Galaxies”
24 - 29th May 2015
Sydney, Australia

We are pleased to announce that the Registration and Call for Papers for
the Conference "Multiwavelength dissection of galaxies", which will be
held in Coogee Beach, Sydney, Australia, between 24 - 29 May 2015, are


This Conference is the eighth meeting in the Southern Cross Astrophysics
Conference series, which are jointly supported by the Australian
Astronomical Observatory (AAO) and CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science
(CASS). The Conference will focus on galaxy evolution, combining resolved
optical/near-infrared integral field spectroscopy (IFS) data with other
multiwavelength (from radio to X-rays) properties of nearby galaxies, and
bringing these together with what is known in our Milky Way. This
Conference expects to combine observations and the best available
theoretical models to create a more complete picture of how galaxies, and
in particular our Milky Way, formed and evolved.

The Call for Talks will close on February 6th, 2015. Call for Posters and
Registration will close on April 17th, 2015.

The Conference Venue is located at the Crowne Plaza Hotel at the famous
Coogee Beach, Sydney, Australia. Crowne Plaza Hotel offers us special
prices for each double room. The special rates are only valid for bookings
between Saturday 23rd and Sunday 31st May 2015, both dates included.
Registered participants will receive instructions of how to proceed with
the hotel booking getting the special rates. The deadline of this offer is
April 22nd, 2015.
