Subject: Announcement for the IAU Symposium 341

Please find an announcement for the IAU Symposium 341: PanModel2018 : Challenges in Panchromatic Galaxy Modelling with Next Generation Facilities that will be held in Osaka, Japan from 12 to 16 November 2018.


How galaxies form and evolve across cosmic times is one of the fundamental questions in modern astronomy. Over the past decade, modeling the panchromatic emission of galaxies has become one of the key tools in measuring their properties. As new and next-generation facilities progressively open a new era in astronomy, we face new and specific challenges in this endeavor: LSST and SKA will provide us with an avalanche of data, the advent of e-ROSITA and the preparation for Athena makes it ever more pressing to include X-ray emission into the standard UV to radio panchromatic models, JWST will observe the first galaxies with extreme stellar populations, and in the meantime ALMA is already starting to provide us with remarkable dust and metal observations at high redshift. The aim of this meeting is to gather theoreticians, modelers, and observers to present and discuss the current frontier in the panchromatic modeling of galaxies and establish where we need to push these frontiers forward to ensure that we will be able to fully exploit the exquisite datasets at our disposal in the 2020s.


  • State-of-the-art panchromatic galaxy models and studies
  • Pushing the redshift frontier: modeling the first galaxies
  • Pushing the wavelength frontier: extending models towards X-rays and radio
  • Pushing the technical frontier: from overwhelmingly large datasets to machine learning,
