1. Register for our October Herschel Data Workshop
Join us for our Herschel Data Workshop to be held October 6-10, 2014, on the Caltech campus in Pasadena, CA. The workshop features a Herschel Essentials track (mornings only) on manipulating and extracting science results from processed products in the Herschel Science Archive, and a Master track (entire workshop) for those wishing to learn how to reprocess the data.
Each day will include hands-on sessions guided by our instrument scientists. We will provide virtual machines to those who need them with all software and data pre-installed, to enable participants to quickly get to work on the data.
Have a topic of particular interest? Register today so we can account for your needs in our workshop planning. Bookmark our workshop website for more details as they develop.
2. Abstracts are due for Star Formation across Space and Time
This meeting seeks to bring together astronomers interested in all aspects of star formation, from local galactic to extreme extra-galactic, high-z conditions. Recent advances on the subject suggest that the various communities can benefit from each other, and the meeting aims to facilitate cross-fertilization between researchers with different observational and theoretical backgrounds. The conference will take place at ESA/ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands, 11-14 November 2014. The deadline for abstract submission is 28 August 2014. More information available from the conference webpage.
3. Applications due September 5th for IPAC Graduate Fellowships
The Infrared Processing and Analysis Center (IPAC) at Caltech is accepting applications for six-month graduate student fellowships. The program allows students from other U.S. or international institutions to visit IPAC-Caltech and perform astronomical research in close association with an IPAC scientist. Eligible applicants are expected to have completed preliminary course work in their graduate program and be available for research during the period of the award. Funding from IPAC will be provided for a 6-month period via monthly stipends, plus relocation expenses.
Applications are due September 5th, 2014. Please follow the application instructions at the IPAC Graduate Fellowship site. For more information please contact the program coordinator, Dr. Rafael Millan-Gabet (firstname.lastname@example.org).

NASA Telescopes Uncover Early Construction of Giant Galaxy
News Release • August 27, 2014
Astronomers have for the first time caught a glimpse of the earliest stages of massive galaxy construction. The building site, dubbed "Sparky," is a dense galactic core blazing with the light of millions of newborn stars that are forming at a ferocious rate.
