Media advisory: Science with the Hubble Space Telescope IV conference

Rome, 17–20 March 2014

7 February 2014

From 17–20 March 2014 the Accademia dei Lincei in Rome, Italy, will host the fourth Hubble Space Telescope conference: "Science with the Hubble Space Telescope IV — Looking to the Future". This conference will kick off the 25th anniversary of Hubble’s launch in 2015, celebrating the tremendous impact the telescope has had on science and society.

"Science with the Hubble Space Telescope IV" aims to highlight the almost quarter century of ground-breaking science and spectacular images that have come from the telescope, as well as pushing forward with discussions about Hubble’s successor, the James Webb Space Telescope. The conference will also explore the key questions that will shape the field of astrophysics in the coming decades. The full and final conference programme is available here. It includes a wide variety of scientific talks and social events.

Bona fide media representatives are invited to attend the conference, and may apply to participate by contacting hubble@eso.org before 1 March 2014. Successful applicants will have their registration fee waived, but travel costs and other expenses will not be covered. Interviews with participants at the conference will also be possible.

Media attendance at the conference will unfortunately be limited as space is tight, and we encourage journalists to register as early as possible. For scientists the general registration must be completed by 1 March 2014 — details can be found here.

More information

The conference is sponsored by ESA and NASA, and is organised by ESA, STScI, and INAF-IAPS.
