Travel Award 2019
On behalf of the Evaluation Committee, I am pleased to announce the winners of the 2019 Galaxies Travel Awards:
Andrea Rossi, a post-doctoral fellow from INAF, will attend the conference “Gamma-ray Bursts in the Gravitational Wave Era 2019”, 28 October–1 November 2019, in Yokohama, Japan, to present his paper “A Comparison between Short GRB afterglows and KN170817: Shedding Light on Kilonovae Properties”.
Maria Tiongco, a post-doctoral fellow from Indiana University, will attend the conference “IAU Symposium 351: Star Clusters: from the Milky Way to the Early Universe”, 27-31 May 2019, in Bologna, Italy, to present her paper “Kinematical Evolution of Multiple Stellar Populations in Star Clusters”.
Due to the high quality of applications, this was a difficult decision. We would like to thank all applicants for submitting their excellent CVs and we appreciate the recommendations from senior researchers. I congratulate the winners for their accomplishments.
Prof. Dr. Emilio Elizalde, Editor-in-Chief
Galaxies provides an advanced forum for studies related to astronomy, astrophysics, and cosmology, including all of their subfields. Different formats, such as specialized research articles, reviews, communications, and technical notes are welcomed. Manuscripts containing original and creative research proposals and ideas are especially appreciated.
We encourage scientists to publish their astronomical observations and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. There is no restriction on the paper length and full experimental and methodological details, as applicable, should be provided. All papers will be peer reviewed promptly. On behalf of the distinguished members of the editorial board, I extend my welcome to all researchers working on these subjects to contribute to Galaxies.

Travel Award 2018
As Editor-in-Chief of Galaxies, I am pleased to announce the two winners of the 2018 Travel Awards sponsored by Galaxies:
Travel Awards were granted to Dr. Rosa Valiante, Postdoctoral Research Fellow of the National Institute of Astrophysics (INAF) at the Astronomical Observatory of Rome, Italy, and Dr. Mar Mezcua, Postdoctoral Research Fellow of the Institute of Space Sciences in Barcelona, Spain. The awards consist of 800 Swiss Francs each, to attend any academic conference in 2018.
Dr. Rosa Valiante’s research involves elaborating models on the evolution of the first galaxies and their immediate descendants, and aims to compare model predictions with existing observational data. She addresses questions on the evolution of the first cosmic structures, with the aim of determining the origin and properties of high-z dust, which have major implications on the interpretation of observational surveys and on the design of selection criteria to search for the first galaxies.
Dr. Mar Mezcua’s work aims at understanding how supermassive black holes form and grow and how this growth affects the galaxy itself. She investigates a wide range of astronomical objects, such as intermediate-mass black holes, dwarf galaxies, ultra-luminous X-ray sources, active galactic nuclei, radio jets, galaxy mergers, and supermassive binary black holes, following a multiwavelength approach, which involves radio, optical, infrared and X-ray observations.
