Dear colleagues,

We are excited to announce the symposium***“**The Renaissance of the Low 
Surface Brightness Universe**”* to be held as part of the European 
Astronomy Society Annual meeting taking place virtually from June 30 to 
July 1, 2021.

The symposium will review the work within the field, from the smallest 
to the largest scales, bringing experts from both theory and 
observations together to shape a panchromatic view of the hidden Universe.

Further details can be found at the conference website: 
/We would appreciate if you could circulate this widely among your 
/Best regards,/
/Anna Ferré-Mateu, Cristina Martínez-Lombilla and Mireia Montes.**/

      Symposium: The Renaissance of the Low Surface Brightness

      The LSB Universe is key for a broad community and this symposium
      aims to address the most pressing questions:

        * How can the state-of-the-art data analysis techniques - which
          preserve LSB features - be implemented in the next generation
          of surveys like LSST and EUCLID, where the European community
          has invested?
        * Can we export the detailed knowledge from resolved studies of
          the Milky Way to other neighboring galaxies to better
          understand their outskirts?
        * What constraints do tidal tails provide on interacting
          galaxies? Do LSB observations agree with numerical predictions
          on the amount and properties of dark matter substructures?
        * Do simulations reproduce the properties of LSB galaxies? How
          can the next generation of telescopes resolve the kinematics
          and populations of their stellar and gas components?
        * Can we constrain the accretion history of clusters by
          understanding the nature of the Intracluster light (ICL)?
