IAU Symposium: Galactic Dynamics in the Era of Large Surveys

23rd June 2019   -   28th June 2019
Shanghai, China


Galaxy dynamics is key to our understanding of the assembly history and current structure of galaxies. Surveys of the Milky Way, Local Group, and nearby and distant galaxies, are mapping their kinematics and chemistry in unprecedented detail. The deluge of data is helping to clarify the role of interactions, gas cycle, star formation, nuclear activity, dynamical and secular evolution in shaping galaxies, and is also raising new questions. The conference will review our current knowledge and address the major challenges to our understanding of galaxy structure and evolution.
