Dear Colleagues,

this might be of interest to some ....


Dear colleagues,
It is our pleasure to announce the ninth incarnation of Science at Low Frequencies (SALF IX), which will be a hybrid conference held from the 11th to the 15th of December, 2023. The in-person component will be hosted at Amsterdam Science Park, The Netherlands. Amsterdam Science Park is easily accessible via public transport from Schiphol international airport and is only a 10-minute train ride (or 20-minute bike ride) from the centre of the city.
Thanks to several low-frequency telescopes maturing in their scientific output, the low-frequency radio astronomy community has been developing rapidly. In particular, there is a large amount of effort going into all-sky surveys and towards studying/detecting the Epoch of Reionisation, transients, pulsars, exoplanets, and radio stars as well as studies of active galactic nuclei, solar physics, and space physics. With the next generation low-frequency telescopes in mind, we also need to understand the achievements and challenges presented by the existing telescopes. This is particularly pertinent considering Square Kilometre Array will start construction imminently. SALF IX is to act as the premier forum to share scientific results and techniques for low-frequency astronomy. 
Talks at SALFIX will be recorded, so you can also peruse the presentations afterwards. There will also be a Slack channel dedicated to the meeting to encourage conversations to extend over different time zones. We are aiming to keep the registration costs of the conference as low as possible, but it is expected to be no more than 150 euro (depending on our success in securing external funding). 
A direct link to registration is available here.
