The 3rd Swinburne-Caltech Workshop: Galaxies and their Halos

11 - 12 September, 2017

The formation and evolution of galaxies remains one of the key unsolved problems of astrophysics. This is a repercussion of the galaxy evolutionary processes being complex and ranging from sub-parsec to Mpc scales. Both Caltech and Swinburne have been making great progress towards understanding galaxy formation and evolution with observational efforts covering a large range of the electromagnetic spectrum to examine galaxies at all possible size-scales and redshifts. Access to state-of-the-art cosmological simulations and semi-analytic models developed at Caltech and Swinburne have been critical in interpreting and understanding our observational results.

This two day event is the third in a series workshops designed to promote discussions on current and future projects in order to maximize science by sharing knowledge and ideas and by building stronger collaborations between the two institutions.

Scientific themes include:

  • Galaxy evolution as seen from models and observations
  • Links between star formation, ISM and CGM
  • The role and sources of galaxy feedback
  • The role of environment

Registration Deadline

Abstract submission and registration will close on July 29th 2017.

Registration Fee

There is no registration fee to attend the workshop.


The workshop will be held in the Hameetman Auditorium in the Cahill Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics on the Caltech campus.
