The topics will include: <br />1) Science: review of and work on ongoing LOFAR projects; probing the thermal and non-thermal gas in galaxies through low-frequency spectral energy distributions; diffusion and ageing of cosmic ray electrons; mapping star formation and evolution in nearby galaxies;  galactic structures (disks, jets, halos); galactic magnetic fields; polarization and depolarization at low frequencies;<br />2) Data: data processing, calibration, polarization.<br />3) Future work: pointed observations and exploitation of the LOFAR surveys, scientific collaborations, preparing for the SKA.<br />Invited speakers: Andrew Fletcher (Newcastle), George Heald (Perth), Volker Heesen (Hamburg), Ann Mao (Bonn), David Mulcahy (Manchester).<br />Registration is possible until 20 April, 2017.<br /><br />For more information and to register got to the <a href="/en/conference/LOFARGalaxies2017" title="Link to the conference webpage" target="_blank">conference webpage.</a><br />http://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/see/calendar/Pages/Rens-Waters,-SRON.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/see/calendar/Pages/Rens-Waters,-SRON.aspxRens Waters, SRON<p>Seminar room, Onsala Space Observatory</p><p>​Titel: TBA</p>​<span style="background-color:initial">Abstract: TBA</span><p class="MsoNormal"></p>
