(Ultra) Precise Astrometry today and tomorrow, with Next-generation Observatories
March 26, 2019
October 09, 2019
High precision astrometry provides the foundation to resolve many fundamental problems in astrophysics.
The application of astrometric studies spans a wide range of fields, and has undergone enormous growth in recent years. This is as a consequence of the increasing measurement precision and wide applicability, which is due in turn to the development of new techniques. Forthcoming next generation observatories have the potential to further increase the astrometric precision,
providing there is a matching improvement in the methods to correct for systematic errors. The EVN and other observatories are providing demonstrations of these and are acting as pathfinders for next-generation telescopes such as the SKA and ngVLA.
We will review the perspectives for the coming facilities and examples of the current
state-of-the-art for astrometry.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
