Attendees from 2017 NYRIA meeting

Leiden Observatory, The Netherlands, 8-12 October, 2018

The Network for Young Researchers in Instrumentation for Astrophysics (NYRIA) is organising its fourth annual workshop at Leiden Observatory. This international group of early career researchers was created after a summer school which took place in 2014 in Santiago, Chile. Many of the participants have convened every year since, organising a meeting or workshop at different institutes in Europe whilst expanding this network.
The meeting aims to create a space to present the work of the attendants, to hold open discussions and to encourage collaborations between participants and institutes. The workshop will include a series of talks by all participants and guest speakers, tours of the Leiden University and facilities in Dwingeloo, and a hack-a-thon, in which all participants will work together on a current instrumentation problem.

Breakfast, lunches, coffee and excursions will be provided for all, with accommodation provided for applicants outside of Leiden. We do however ask for a registration fee up to €50 which will go towards the workshop dinner that will take place in Dwingeloo.

The timeline of the application process is as follows:
Applicant Registration Deadline: 1st August 2018
Notification of Acceptance: 15th August 2018
