Willkommen bei der ÖGAA!

Austrian Early Career Conference 2024

The Austrian Society for Astronomy and Astrophysics (ÖGAA) organizes a conference, focusing on early career scientists and to promote the PhD students and young PostDocs community. We like to foster the networking among students and advanced researchers, as well as to give the opportunity to have a presentation in a conference environment for students and early career researchers.

The scientific scope of the conference is astronomy, astrophysics, astroparticle physics, solar and heliospheric physics, as well as space sciences. The intended 20 minutes presentation per participant can be listed in a CV as a conference talk.

Date and Time:
8th and 9th of March 2024, from noon to noon

Vega Sternwarte Image: Simmerstatter

Conference Venue:

We recommend booking a hotel in Salzburg.
Transportation from Salzburg will be organized.
