The 1st announcement

Gaia DR2 took place 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 month tens of publications using Gaia data have already appeared in the preprint servers. In one year time we can anticipate a wealth of studies having been completed. Early 2019 it is time to see the progress made with the Gaia data and get together at ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands from 8 until 12 April 2019. ESLAB #53 "The Gaia Universe" conference will cover all research areas addressed by Gaia. Mark the week in your agenda. After summer 2018 further details of registration and abstract submission will be provided.
