Dear colleagues, 

It is our pleasure to announce the ninth incarnation of Science at Low
Frequencies (SALF IX), which will be a hybrid conference held from the
11th to the 15th of December, 2023. The in-person component will be
hosted at Amsterdam Science Park, The Netherlands. Amsterdam Science
Park is easily accessible via public transport from Schiphol
international airport and is only a 10-minute train ride (or 20-minute
bike ride) from the centre of the city. 

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. This is particularly pertinent considering Square Kilometre
Array will start construction imminently. SALF IX is to act as the
premier forum to share scientific results and techniques for
low-frequency astronomy.  

Talks at SALF IX 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 different time
zones. We are aiming to keep the registration costs of the conference as
low as possible, but it is expected to be no more than 150 euro
(depending on our success in securing external funding).
