Noordwijk, ESA/ESTEC

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), scheduled for launch in October 2018, will be one of the great observatories of the next decade. JWST and its suite of 4 instruments will provide imaging, spectroscopic and coronagraphic capabilities over the 0.6 to 28.5 micron wavelength range and will offer an unprecedented combination of sensitivity and spatial resolution to study targets ranging from our Solar System to the most distant galaxies.

With JWST’s launch date approaching steadily and a first call for proposals scheduled for the end of 2017, it is important to give the astronomical community opportunities to present, highlight and discuss scientific programs that will be made possible by JWST.

In this context, we are organizing the scientific conference JWST-2015 “Exploring the Universe with JWST”, which will take place during the week of the 12th to the 16th of October 2015 at ESTEC, one of the centers of the European Space Agency (ESA)

This conference will cover a broad range of scientific topics that will be organized in the following categories:

The end of the "dark ages": first light and reionisation.
The assembly of galaxies.
The formation and evolution of stars and planets.
Planetary systems and the origins of life (exoplanets)
Our Solar system.

The attendance will be limited to approximately 250 persons.
