GES 2017: Gaia-ESO Survey Fourth Science Meeting

Event date: 
04/09/2017 to 08/09/2017
Location: 
Catania, Italy

Towards the end of its five-year observational campaign using the Fibre Large Array Multi Element Spectrograph (FLAMES) on the ESO-VLT, the Gaia-ESO Survey Fourth Science Meeting (GES2017) will be an excellent opportunity to discuss the new fifth internal data release in view of the forthcoming final data processing and analysis. The meeting is also timely for discussing combinations with the intermediate Gaia data releases and possible synergies with other Galactic surveys.

The topics that will be covered include:

  • Spectroscopic analysis methods
  • Synergies with Gaia
  • Galactic disc and halo
  • Bulge and Inner Galaxy
  • Chemo-dynamical modelling
  • Stellar clusters formation and evolution
  • Stellar evolution (including magnetic activity, accretion, and multiplicity)
