Gaia: The (two) billion star galaxy census: The promise of (E)DR3 and ground-based synergies
The first ESA Gaia Billion Star Census of the Milky Way, was released in April 2018 as the Gaia Data Release 2 (Gaia DR2). This release contained full five parameter astrometry for ~1.3 billion sources, along with a wealth of associated data (such as magnitudes, colours, mean radial velocities for brighter objects - see https://www.cosmos.esa.int/web/gaia/data-release-2 for details). This marked a major milestone in the Gaia mission, following on from the Gaia Data Release 1 (Gaia DR1) in September 2016. Gaia is revolutionizing our understanding of the formation history of the Milky Way, and is having a significant impact on many other areas of astronomy ranging from solar system science to quasars. The impact of Gaia is set to increase through the impact of existing and planned large spectroscopic surveys.
The speakers and programme will be available at the meeting website - see http://great.ast.cam.ac.uk/Greatwiki/GreatMeet-PM13
