February 20(Mon)-23(Thu), 2023
Kyoto University Science Seminar House


The field of galaxy evolution covers a wide range of astrophysical scales: from the cosmic large-scale structure to the central black hole of the Milky Way. This is a rapidly evolving field and thus it is important to understand astrophysical processes operating on various physical and time scales to draw a complete picture of galaxy evolution. While a classical workshop focusing on some specific aspects of galaxies is already useful, a workshop with a broader scope, essentially on everything about galaxies, is highly complementary. Motivated by this, we decided to hold a “Galaxy Evolution Workshop" every year to improve our understanding of the complex nature of galaxies and their evolution over the cosmic time. In this year, we will hold an international in-person workshop, for the first time after the covid pandemic, in Kyoto University.

Note that the number of on-site participant will be limited to ~80, which depends on the pandemic situation in Japan. Only the registered people can enter the seminar house.

The goals of the workshop are:

  1. to present and discuss new results
  2. to discuss what the next steps will be

This 9th workshop is jointly hosted by Japan, Taiwan, and Korea communities, to spark cooperations among East-Asia. We very much appreciate presentations by young postdocs and students. Any presentations related to galaxies (from the Milky Way to the most distant galaxies) are welcome.

In addition to general science sessions, we will have a focused session. This time our main theme is ‘Early Science with JWST’. This is undoubtedly the hottest topic of the galaxy evolution field this year. We invite several keynote speakers to provide a broad context review. We also welcome contributed talks about this focused topic. We look forward to seeing you at the workshop!
