Dear colleagues,

It is our pleasure to announce the seventh incarnation of Science at Low Frequencies (SALF VII), which will be held online from the 1st to the 4th of December, 2020.

The format will feature 2-hour blocks distributed every 8 hours to allow most people in the world to participate in person in a somewhat favourable time zone. All talks will be recorded, so you can also peruse the presentations afterwards. There will also be a Slack channel dedicated to the meeting to encourage conversations to extend over the different time zones. An online social event will also be encouraged mid-way through the meeting.

Thanks to several low-frequency telescopes maturing in their scientific output, the low-frequency radio astronomy community has been developing rapidly. In particular, there is a large amount of effort going into all-sky surveys and towards studying/detecting the Epoch of Reionisation, transients, pulsars, exoplanets, and radio stars as well as studies of active galactic nuclei, solar physics, and space physics. With the next generation low-frequency telescopes in mind, we also need to understand the achievements and challenges presented by the existing telescopes. SALF VII is to act as the premier forum to share scientific results and techniques for low-frequency astronomy.
