The Galaxy survey “Continuum HAlos in Nearby Galaxies – an Evla Survey (CHANG-ES)“ was observed at the Expanded Very Large Array (EVLA radio telescope), New Mexico, USA. It contains a galaxy sample of significant size over a variety of angular spatial scales, which will help to address fundamental questions regarding radio halos and magnetic fields in spiral galaxies. The galaxies were observed at the two low frequencies, 1.5 GHz (20 cm wavelength) and 6 GHz (6 cm wavelength). CHANG-ES can also exploit the wide bandwidths that are provided by the EVLA. These wide bandwidths permit enormous improvements in continuum sensitivity. In addition, the wide bands provide a wealth of spectral information that will be unique to this survey. Moreover, CHANG-ES is the first survey of edge-on galaxies for which all polarization products will be obtained, providing important information on halo magnetic fields (Irwin et al. 2012).

The meeting takes place from June 6th to June 10th at the conference center of the Ruhr-University Bochum.

The conference center (VZ) is located below the dining hall south of the Audimax. Whether you arrive by car or by public transportation you just have to go straight ahead (more or less). You can find a campus map with marked routes here. A more detailed description can be found under Travel Information.
