Division H WG The Galactic Center


The Working Group on the Galactic Center will serve to facilitate scientific discussion, coordinate multi-wavelength observing campaigns, and to foster collaborations in theoretical research on the central few hundred parsecs of our Galaxy. The working group represents an effort over the last two decades to keep Galactic Center astronomers in close contact and to ensure that the trend of international Galactic Center symposia held every three years remains a priority in our active community.
