Science with the Hubble Space Telescope IV update

24 January 2014

We are less than two months away from the start of the Science with the Hubble Space Telescope IV conference, to be held at the prestigious Accademia dei Lincei in Rome on 17–20 March 2014.

This conference is designed to highlight the scientific breakthroughs made by the Hubble Space Telescope in its two decades of life. We have three specific goals for this meeting:

  • To share the latest results from Hubble across the broad canvas of astronomy.
  • To inspire the community of Hubble users to think about how Hubble’s successor — the James Webb Space Telescope — will move their scientific field forward.
  • To look further into the future, posing the scientific questions that will shape the field of astrophysics in the next decade.

This conference comes five years after Servicing Mission 4 — the last manned mission to Hubble. We will kick off the 25th anniversary of Hubble’s launch (April 2015) by celebrating the tremendous impact this observatory has had on science and society, also recognising the collaboration between the fields of art and science with the inauguration of a new astronomy-inspired art installation, the Heaven’s Carousel (sci14001).

We have received more than 150 interesting abstracts on a huge variety of exciting topics, reflecting the broad range of science that an observatory as versatile as Hubble can enable. The Scientific Organising Committee had the difficult task of allocating the few slots available for talks, but the final programme has now been finalised and posted on the conference website.

All participants are invited to present posters illustrating their results. Registration to the conference is now open, and will remain open until 1 March. Regrettably, there will not be on-site registration for this conference .
