Promotional banner for March 13-15 2018 Workshop

Precision astrometry is providing many advances in our understanding of the physics of the local universe. These advances will expand as the HST time baseline increases, the Gaia DR2 catalog is released, JWST is launched and new ground-based facilities come on-line. The proposed workshop will address the state of our current and near-future facilities, the techniques that are needed to achieve precision astrometry, science results and the future landscape.

Hosts: Andrea Bellini and Laura Watkins


The Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) is a short ride away from major airports and train stations. Find information related to driving directions and relevant transportation resources on our Getting Here page.
