Gaia Data Release 2 took place on 25 April 2018. The scientific community has since been using the data intensively exploring topics ranging from the Solar System to quasars. In the first months after the release, hundreds of publications using Gaia DR2 data have appeared. In one year time, one can anticipate a wealth of studies having been completed. Early 2019 is an excellent time to see the progress made with the Gaia data and to get together at ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands from 8 until 12 April 2019. The ESLAB #53 "The Gaia Universe" conference will cover all research areas addressed by Gaia.


The programme for the 53rd ESLAB symposium is now online.
