Radio2021 & GLOW Assembly

22-24 November 2021, MPA, Garching

The meeting will host a symposium covering a broad variety of astrophysics at radio wavelength, as well as GLOW (German Long Wavelength Consortium), LOFAR and MeerKAT gatherings.

Please note that all people external to MPA will have to present a vaccination certificate, a valid test certificate (this excludes self tests, but an official test station exists on campus at TUM if needed), or proof of recovery if attending the meeting in person. Depending on the number of registered participants and the Corona rules, we might have to put a cap to the in-person participation, but in this case we plan to live-stream all talks.

Registration for participation and abstract submission will close on October 10th.

There will be no conference fee, but the participants will have to cover lunch/dinner costs.
