More information 
Astronomdagarna is a conference for Swedish astronomers taking place every two years since 1999. Although there was an Astronomdagarna meeting in 2021, another one will take place in 2022 between October 6 to 8 at Chalmers University of Technology in the Kårhuset building. The motivation for this is that now we can meet in person, while the event was held virtually in 2021. Hence, we hope to see many of you in Göteborg! Conference talks and poster presentations will be given in person. 

Astronomdagarna is a communication platform within the Swedish astronomical community. It is not a conference on a specific theme, but it covers all themes in Swedish astronomy. There is a special focus in providing young researchers with a platform to present their research results.

Registration is now closed.
