MWA Project Meeting: Lausanne, 2024


This year, we are very excited to hold the meeting in Switzerland, the MWA Collaboration's newest international collaborator. 

Radio astronomers are invited to attend from Wednesday 28 August* to Friday 30 August 2024 at SCITAS-EPFL in Lausanne.

Our meeting will be held adjacent in time to the annual Swiss SKA Days, to take place in Geneva from 2-4 September 2024, so it will be a festival of international radio astronomy!  


The event will be held in-person, with remote participation facilitated online. 

The Project Meeting will commence on Wednesday 28 August, with training that morning for MWA Collaboration Members only. Project meeting activities for both members and non-members will commence on Wednesday afternoon.  That evening, attendees are invited to a Welcome Event: a casual BYOB and BBQ under the arches of the Rolex Learning Centre. Food will be provided by SCITAS.

The schedule will be updated, and further detail provided in due course.

The time zone of the meeting will be that of the venue - Central European Time (AWST, UTC+1). 

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.
