The annual meeting 2013

of the

DFG Research Unit FOR 1254

Magnetisation of Interstellar and Intergalactic Media. The Prospects of Low-Frequency Radio Observations

will take place from September 30 to October 2, 2013  at
 Landhotel Rügheim (Lower Franconia)


This fourth meeting of the Research Unit is held ‘to ring in’ the second funding period. Meanwhile, LOFAR has become routinely operational and has delivered first spectacular results on the relativistic plasmas in galaxies and clusters of galaxies. This meeting is to convey the scientific achievements made in the framework of the Research Unit over more than three years of active research, with data collected by LOFAR being in the focus, while supplementary data from other instruments disclosing magnetic fields in diffuse media (WSRT, EVLA, GMRT, …) are also presented. The results of these studies can be interpreted using numerical simulations, which have become more and more realistic over the recent past.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Hofheim/Rügheim.
