The Metrewavelength Sky - II
Celebrating the 90th year of Govind Swarup and the 1st year of the upgraded GMRT
National Centre for Radio Astrophysics, Pune, India
Dates: March 18 - 22, 2019
The Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) has recently undergone a major upgrade (the ``uGMRT'' project) that has significantly improved its scientific capabilities, opening up a wide range of interesting science areas to the radio community. The first uGMRT results are now beginning to appear and the uGMRT will be formally opened in 2019. March 2019 will also mark the 90th birthday of Govind Swarup, who conceived of, and led, the original GMRT project. To celebrate both of these events, the National Centre for Radio Astrophysics of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (NCRA-TIFR) will host an international conference on radio astronomy in Pune, India, over March 18 - 22, 2019.
