.Astronomy X

Baltimore, 24-27 September 2018

For the 10th edition of .Astronomy, we're excited to be taking the conference back to the United States, to one of the world's leading places for space astronomy: the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, MD.

STScI is the home of scientific operations for the Hubble Space Telescope, which has revolutionised astronomy since its launch. It will be the epicenter for operations of the James Webb Space Telescope, and hosts one the leading data archives for astronomy, the Mikulski Archive for Space Telescopes (MAST).  The Institute is located on the Homewood Campus of Johns Hopkins University in Northern Baltimore

We will be providing more details of the conference programme, speakers and local information in due course. We hope to see you in September!
