La Palma INTERNATIONAL TIME PROGRAMME:

The Star Formation History of Dwarf Galaxies


Summary:
MAGPOP is a Marie Curie Research Training Network funded under the Sixth Framework Programme of the EU, running from 1 December 2004 to 1 December 2008. Its objectives are to extract key physical information - stellar masses, star formation rates, star formation histories, metallicities, dust content and the incidence of accretion onto central supermassive black holes - from the spectral energy distributions (SEDs) of galaxies in the local Universe and at high redshifts.

The first large MAGPOP programme is an observational project to investigate the star formation history of Dwarf Galaxies. We have been allocated 12 nights on each of the 4 large telescopes at La Palma (WHT, INT, TNG and NOT) for various kinds of observations. An abstract of the ITP proposal can be found here.

Meetings
A startup meeting will be help for this ITP on Friday September 9 in Groningen. Some details about that meeting can be found here (NEW!).  Click here for details on how to get to the Kapteyn Institute in Groningen.
