Presentations from the workshop are available for download (sorted by session and day, see program link on the left to find the session and day of a particular presentation.)
The close promixity of the Magellanic Clouds to the Milky Way provides us with a unique laboratory to study various astrophysical processes such as star formation in low metallicity environments, feedback processes in the interstellar medium, and physical roles of galaxy interaction in chemical and dynamical evolution of gas-rich galaxies. These processes are fundamental to our understanding of galaxy formation and evolution in the Universe. Recent high-resolution observational data in different wavelength regimes have revealed much new data regarding stellar populations, clusters, the multi-wavelength properties of star-forming regions, and the dynamics of the Magellanic System. These data open the door to further studies of the formation and evolution of the System, and galaxies in general. Good examples are the new proper motions measurements of the Clouds, and the various models that have been generated to trace their past and future orbital and interaction history.
It has been some time since the last major international conference related to the Magellanic System was held. Therefore, next year is a timely opportunity to re-assess this exciting field. The principle aim of this meeting is to compare the latest observational results with the corresponding recent theoretical models.
Update 4/9/2012: Program updated and abstracts now available (see Program page in menu to the left).
The registration fee is $300, which includes tea/coffee breaks, lunches, evening reception and workshop dinner. We have extended the deadline for registration to June 30th 2012. Talk contributions are no longer being accepted, but you can still present a poster or attend the meeting without presenting. If you would like to give an oral presentation, please let us know via email and we may have an empty slot in the program for you.
The evening reception and workshop dinner are subsidised by ICRAR and a rate of $270 will be given for those who do not wish to participate in the workshop dinner.
Additional guests will be charged at $100/person for the workshop dinner.
Payments for registration will only be accepted via credit card online through our secure payment facilities. Cancellation must be made before June 30th, 2012. Please contact Kathy Kok (email@example.com) to arrange a refund (no refund will be given if cancellation is received after the 30th of June.) If payment is not received by 30th of June, your registration will be cancelled.
