The Symposium will be held at the University of Manchester, UK.
At this conference the latest scientific results and technical developments from VLBI and e-VLBI results will be reported. The timing of this meeting coincides with the development of, and first results from a number of new and upgraded radio facilities around the globe, such as e-MERLIN, LOFAR, EVLA, ALMA, and the SKA pathfinders ASKAP and MeerKAT. This meeting will incorporate some of the first results from these new instruments, in addition to the unique scientific and technical contribution of VLBI in this new era of radio astronomy.
Planned science sessions will include: Life cycle of matter in stars and galaxies; AGN and cosmic star-formation; Extreme Astrophysics; Astrometry, Geodesy, space and planetary science; Techniques & developments.
VENUE: The conference will be held in the University of Manchester's conference venue, the Weston Building, which is situated in city centre of Manchester. Manchester itself is a vibrant city with ample attractions and amenities for all visitors. Accommodation for delegates has been reserved in the conference venue itself.
