Subject: Pre-registration for IAU Symposium 352 closing soon

Dear colleagues,

We'd like to remind you that pre-registration for the below symposium is closing soon, and that you *MUST* pre-register to submit an oral/poster contribution.

Hope to see you in Portugal!

Best regards, Jacqueline Hodge & Elisabete da Cunha



Dear colleagues,

We are happy to announce that pre-registration and abstract submission are now open for the IAU Symposium 352 on "Uncovering early galaxy evolution in the ALMA and JWST era”, from 3-7 June 2019 in Viana do Castelo, Portugal.

Pre-registration link here: [1] (closes December 15th).

Please note that a number of IAU travel grants will be available to support participation by students and early career researchers. You can apply for this financial support at the time of pre-registration.

Outcomes regarding submissions of oral contributions and IAU travel grants will be announced in February, in time for early-bird registration.

Childcare arrangements will be available upon request. If you are interested in this option, please provide details on the pre-registration form.

The main goal of the symposium is to bring together the community working on galaxy evolution at z2 in order to discuss the current status and challenges in the field, as well as to plan for the time when we will have both ALMA and JWST available. The symposium will take place in the historic Santiago da Barra Fortress in the heart of Viana do Castelo. You can find more details about the scientific rationale, session topics, confirmed invited speakers, important dates, etc, on our website, [2].

We would appreciate if you could forward this announcement to institutions or colleagues who may be interested.

We hope to see you in Portugal!

Best regards, Elisabete da Cunha & Jacqueline Hodge
