10 years of MWA operations: a celebration of international collaboration in radio astronomy


July 2023 is a significant milestone for the Murchison Widefield Array, marking a decade of operations for the telescope. To celebrate, ICRAR-Curtin is hosting an event to commemorate the science outcomes of the instrument with the MWA Collaboration. 

Radio-astronomers are invited to attend Tuesday 25 July to Friday 28 July 2023 at Technology Park in Perth, Western Australia. 

Our celebration will include talks from prominent, international radio astronomers, presentations outlining the latest in MWA science, social activities including tours of Perth's astronomy facilities for in-person attendees, and a cocktail-style sundowner. 


Event invitees are encouraged to attend in-person, however for participants who cannot travel to Perth, there will be an option to follow the main sessions remotely - online meeting join details will be sent to registered participants' email addresses closer to the event. These streamed sessions will (where possible) be recorded and made available after the conference.

The time zone of the meeting will be that of the venue - Australian Western Standard Time (AWST, UTC+8). 

The meeting schedule and travel details can be accessed on the relevant pages in the left-hand menu of this website. Please do not hesitate to contact the LOC if you have any questions.
