VVV Conference 2010

Contents

VVV Science Meeting 2010

To be held at Viña del Mar, Chile, 8-10 December 2010. Registrations are open. Costs, registration fee, closing date and other logistic information will be published soon.

Scientific Rationale

VISTA Variables in the Vía Láctea (VVV) is one of the six ESO Public Surveys selected to operate with the new 4-meter VISTA Telescope. VVV is scanning the Milky Way bulge and an adjacent section of the midplane, where star formation activity is high. The survey will take 1929 hours of observations during five years (2010–2014), covering ~109 point sources across an area of 520 deg2, including 33 known globular and ~350 open clusters. During the First VVV Meeting we will discuss the first scientific results of the VVV Survey and plan strategies for the next few years.

Traveling to Viña del Mar

Aerial view of Viña del Mar

Flying to Santiago

The International Airport of Santiago (code SCL), officially called Arturo Merino Benítez, is located on the outskirts of Santiago. Public transport is available between the airport and downtown Santiago, with options including buses, minibuses and taxis. We highly recommend using the official transport offered by Santiago airport. Further information can be found at | http://www.aeropuertosantiago.cl/. Those who wish to travel directly from the airport to Viña del Mar can take a bus (details at the link above) or taxi to Estación Pajaritos, from there you can catch a bus to Viña del Mar. Alternatively, if you arrive on a LAN flight it is possible to book a direct transfer from the airport to Viña. This journey must be booked in advance with LAN and is apparently not available to passengers arriving on other airlines | http://www.lan.com/asociados/informacion/datos_uso_diario/buses_vina.html.

Night view from Valparaiso towards Viña del Mar

Viña del Mar

Viña del Mar is a Chilean commune and coastal city in Valparaíso Province, 120km from Santiago. Viña is also known as La Ciudad Jardín ("The Garden City") for displaying big green areas. It has precious beaches, with long avenues that limit with the ocean. During December the average temperature in Viña del Mar ranges from 15.6C (59.3F) to 23.1C (73.4F) with little rain, ~10 mm/month. A regular bus service connects Viña to Santiago every 10-20min during the day. (see turbus or pullman bus).

IMPORTANT: December 8 is a religious holiday at Chile. That day the road to Viña may be closed because of this festivity. HOWEVER, we have checked with the bus companies and services will be normal from Santiago to Viña that day, with trips every 20 minutes.
