LSST Workshop, Nov 19-21, La Serena, Chile

The beginning of operations of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), scheduled for ~2020, is approaching very fast. The main motivation for this workshop is to address how prepared are we, as Chilean community, for the avalanche of LSST data and more importantly what research we hope to do with these data. With this in mind, we are organizing a two-days meeting in which members of the Chilean community can present and discuss their ideas to make the best use of the LSST data and multi wavelength follow-up studies, ranging from solar system and planetary science to high redshift galaxies and cosmology.

Korea-Chile Workshop 2015, Dec 2 - 3, Santiago

Chile has unique advantages in today’s astronomical research for providing the best observational sites and hosting most of the modern ground-based observatories. In addition, the Chilean Astronomy community is vibrant and rapidly growing. Korea is participating in constructing the next generation of astronomical telescopes and instrumentation, and promoting international cooperation in observational and theoretical research. The collaboration between Korean and Chilean astronomers, in the framework of the recent agreement signed between the Comisión Nacional de Investigación Científica y Tecnológica (CONICYT) and Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI), will benefit both communities.

A joint workshop will be held on December 2-3, 2015 at the San Joaquin Campus of the Universidad Catolica de Chile, in Santiago. This will provide an excellent opportunity for exchanging ideas and fostering future scientific collaborations. Registration and more specific information for the workshop will be available at www.sochias.cl. Any astronomers affiliated with Chilean or Korean institutes are welcome to participate in the workshop by presenting their current lines of research.

Deadline for Korean participants is on October 23rd and for Chilean participants on November 5th.

China-Chile Workshop 2013, Sept 9-11th, Viña del Mar

Viña del Mar, Chile, September 9 - 11, 2016

Chile has unique advantages in today’s astronomical research for providing the best observational sites and hosting most of the modern ground-based observatories. Chilean astronomers have privileged access to all these facilities. China has started major efforts in constructing the next generation of astronomical instrumentation and promoting international cooperation in observational and theoretical research. The collaboration between Chinese and Chilean astronomers, with the help of the soon-to-be inaugurated China-Chile Joint Center for Astronomy, will benefit both communities.

A joint workshop will be held on September 9th to 11th in Vina del Mar, Chile, and will provide an excellent opportunity for exchanging ideas for development of the Center and for fostering scientific collaborations.
