Science Drivers

Since the times of the International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE), the Spanish Astronomy has been involved in UV observations, resulting in a strong UV community. To bring together the UV-based astrophysical research carried out in Spain and to discuss the present and future of the field, we plan a "WSO Working Group and Spanish UV Astronomy" workshop. The calibrations programs and science to be carried out with ISSIS on board the World Space Observatory-Ultraviolet (WSO-UV), a 170 cm UV space telescope to be launched soon, will be particularly examined.
