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

We are pleased to announce that the list of accepted contributed talks and the preliminary program for the Conference "Multiwavelength dissection of galaxies", which will be held in Coogee Beach, Sydney, Australia, between 24 - 29 May 2015, are already available in our website,


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.

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, but rooms are filling fast.

In case this is also of your interest, The AAO's International Telescopes Support Office (ITSO) and Astronomy Australia Limited (AAL) are organizing the "2015 Australian Gemini, Magellan, and Keck Science Symposium" the week before the "Multiwavelength Dissection of Galaxies" Conference starts, on  21 & 22 May 2015. It will be held at the AAO Headquarters in North Ryde, Sydney. There will be no registration fee, and lunch, morning and afternoon teas will be provided.
