The Network for Young Researchers in Instrumentation for Astrophysics (NYRIA [1]) is organising its 5th annual workshop from 4 to 8 November 2019 at University of Lisbon [2] (Portugal).


This international group of early career researchers was created after a summer school which took place in 2014 in Santiago, Chile. Many of the participants have convened every year since, organising a meeting or workshop at different institutes in Europe whilst expanding this network. The workshop is aimed for early career researchers, i.e. final year Bachelor students, Masters students, PhD students and post-doctoral researchers, working in ground based, visible and infrared instrumentation for astronomy.

The workshop will include a series of talks by all participants and guest speakers, tours of the optics labs at the faculty and some sightseeing. Breakfast, lunches, coffee and excursions will be provided for all, with accommodation provided for applicants outside of Lisbon. We do however ask for a registration fee of €60 which will go towards the workshop dinner and the social event.

The timeline of application process is as follows:


Applicant Registration Deadline: 23rd August 2019
Notification of Acceptance: 6th September 2019
