The Universe in 56 colours: science with the first J-PAS data
it is a great pleasure to announce the RIA meeting "The Universe in 56 colours: science with the first J-PAS data" (2nd - 4th December 2019) in Teruel, Spain. Free registration is now open at
The deadline for registration is 17th October 2019. There is some funding available to cover lodging and per diem expenses.
The Javalambre Physics of the accelerating universe Astrophysical Survey (J-PAS) will map thousands of square degrees of the Northern sky with a unique filter set composed by 56 medium bands (of 14 nm width) in the optical. J-PAS will provide high quality photometric redshifts (~1000 km/s precision) for several million galaxies, and relevant contribution in the fields of cosmology, galaxy evolution, and the study of the Milky Way are expected.
The goal of this RIA meeting is to publicly present the first square degree covered with the 56 J-PAS filters down to nominal survey depth, release worldwide the reduced images and catalogues, demonstrate the capabilities of the J-PAS concept with real data, and motivate the scientific exploitation of J-PAS by the international community.
The meeting will cover both technical and scientific topics, with sessions focused on the observations, the reduction pipelines, the photometric calibration, and the access to the released data. The scientific analysis of the J-PAS data will be also presented, together with the synergies among other projects with relevant Spanish contribution and/or carried out from other astronomical ICTS.
Feel free to send this announcement to anyone that might be interested.
We are looking forward to meet you in Teruel,
