The 8th International e-VLBI Workshop

EXPReS09
22-26 June 2009
Madrid, Spain
Real-time, long-baseline, radio interferometry over optical networks has been transformed in recent years from a technical possibility to a mature technique. Emerging interferometer arrays such as e-MERLIN, E-LOFAR, e-EVN and other e-VLBI arrays will exploit mixed private/shared networks to achieve for the first time wide-bandwidth real-time operation. This conference covers both scientific applications of networked interferometry and technical implementation.
