EVN Symposium


The 15th European VLBI Network (EVN) Symposium, “Providing the Sharpest View of the Universe", and the EVN Users Meeting will be hosted by University College Cork (Ireland) on 11-15 July 2022 as in-person event, with also the option of online participation for those who do not feel able to come to Cork. Registration for the Symposium is currently open and the deadline for abstract submission is 30 April 2022.

The EVN Symposium 2022 is the main forum for discussion of the latest Very Long Baseline Interferometry scientific results and technical and technological developments within the EVN member countries.

The scientific programme will include a variety of invited and contributed talks, as well as posters, which will be displayed throughout the symposium. The main topics to be discussed at the symposium will include:

  • The innermost structure of AGNs and the origin of jets
  • Starburst galaxies
  • Stellar evolution and stellar masers
  • FRBs and pulsars
  • Astrometry
  • Space applications
  • The relationship of EVN with other VLBI facilities
  • Synergies with other wavelengths/multi-messenger astronomy
  • New VLBI developments, new technical capabilities

Registration is now open and can be accessed here. The registration covers the cost of all lunches and coffee breaks, a poster reception, the conference dinner as well expenses associated with the hybrid nature of the sessions and the conference proceedings.

The deadline for submitting abstracts for a talk of a poster is 30 April 2022. Find the submission instructions here.

The proceedings of the symposium will be published online in Proceedings of Science.

Additional information

The European VLBI Network (EVN) is an interferometric array of radio telescopes spread throughout Europe, Asia, South Africa and the Americas that conducts unique, high-resolution, radio astronomical observations of cosmic radio sources. Established in 1980, the EVN has grown into the most sensitive VLBI array in the world, including over 20 individual telescopes, among them some of the world's largest and most sensitive radio telescopes. The EVN is composed of 13 Full Member Institutes and 5 Associated Member Institutes.

The Joint Institute for VLBI ERIC (JIVE) has as its primary mission to operate and develop the EVN data processor, a powerful supercomputer that combines the signals from radio telescopes located across the planet. Founded in 1993, JIVE is since 2015 a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) with seven member countries: France, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Spain and Sweden; additional support is received from partner institutes in China, Germany and South Africa. JIVE is hosted at the offices of the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy (ASTRON) in the Netherlands.
