A Closer Look in Space and Time

As the conference is coming closer there are several important news we would like to distribute. A close-to-final programme is already available on our web-site. All participants will receive a copy of the abstract booklet containing a detailed programme, all abstracts incl. poster numbers and some practical information.

The sub-topics of the meeting will be presented and discussed in a series of oral and poster contributions. The sessions will be centred on invited reviews supplemented by contributed talks offering opportunities to highlight exciting new results. All talks will be presented via our Windows and Apple computers being able to show PowerPoint, Keynote and pdf - files. Using individual laptops is strongly discouraged since we have a quite tight schedule. We plan to collect all presentations as pdf-files in order to make them available via our web-site. Posters of Size up to A0 will be on display throughout the meeting. Please don't use pins but adhesive tape to mount them!

WIFI is available to all participants. A few desktop PCs for internet access will be offered in a separate room.

Proceedings of the conference will be published in a similar way as in 2006 and 2010 (see ASP Conf. Ser. Vols. 378 and 445). The page limits will be 10 for invited talks, 5 for contributed talks, and 2 for posters. The deadline for submitting your contributions will be September 30, 2014! More info after the conference!

We invite you to our welcome reception on Sunday evening at the conference venue. The registration desk will be opened then, too. For those registered there will be an evening city walk on Monday, a trip to the beautiful Wachau valley including a ship cruise on Wednesday afternoon and the conference dinner at the old observatory on Thursday. Please finalize your payments for the Wachau trip!

Please check our website for updated information, e.g. a map of the campus in the Conference Venue section. If you have any questions, please contact us at galagb.astro@univie.ac.at Have a safe trip to Vienna!

* We are looking forward to seeing you soon in Vienna! *
