The 14th European VLBI Network (EVN) Symposium and Users Meeting will be hosted by the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía-CSIC in Granada (Spain) on behalf of the EVN Consortium Board of Directors. The meeting will take place on October 8-11, 2018 at the main auditorium of the Parque de las Ciencias of Granada, the science museum of the city, within walking distance from the historic areas of Granada.
This biennial meeting is the main forum for discussion of the latest very long baseline interferometric scientific results and technical and technological developments within the EVN member countries. At this meeting there will also be a chance for user input into the future Science Vision for the EVN.
Topics to be discussed include:
Powerful AGN science
Starburst galaxies, extragalactic masers, and supernovae
Stellar evolution and stellar masers
Transient sources and pulsars
Astrometric, geodetic & space applications
VLBI technology developments
Current and future VLBI facilities and international cooperation
Moreover, the meeting will also focus on the role of EVN on:
Very-high sensitivity VLBI with SKA
Future multi-wavelength and multi-messenger astronomy including high angular-resolution astronomy at other wavelengths
The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 730562 [RadioNet]
