Galactic bars: driving and decoding galaxy evolution

Granada, Spain

3 - 7 July, 2023

A large fraction of massive disc galaxies in the local Universe, including our own Milky Way, host elongated stellar structures, called galactic bars. These non-axisymmetric structures introduce torques in their host galaxies, which play a key role in their evolution, especially at late cosmic epochs. Chief amongst these secular, bar-driven evolutionary processes, is the redistribution of angular momentum across the galaxy, in the stars, gas and dark matter content. Understanding the formation and evolution of bars is therefore fundamental to achieving a complete picture of galaxy formation and evolution.

The past decade, since the last major conference on galactic bars, also in Granada in 2013, has seen numerous and significant developments (both observational and theoretical). With the start of JWST operations and the ELTs coming online in the near future, it is time to take stock of our current understanding on the formation and evolution of bars and their impact on their host galaxies. This meeting will also celebrate Lia Athanassoula's career and her pioneering contributions to the field of bar dynamics thus far.

Abstract submission is now open, with a deadline on 15 February. For further details, please visit:
