In 2016, a leading center of the Russian ground-based observational astronomy, Special Astrophysical Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences, is celebrating its 50th anniversary. The Observatory organizes an international conference "Multi-spin galaxies 2016", as a part of the festivities.

Multi-spin galaxies - 2016

The main purpose of the conference is the discussions between observers and theorists on the current understanding on the origin and evolution of the angular momentum decoupling in galaxies ("multi-spin galaxies" V. Rubin, 1994). This class of objects includes all galaxies with a kinematically distinct component of gas and/or stars, with several inclination angles and extensions with respect to the host galaxy: they are galaxies with inner or extended polar rings/disks, low-inclined rings, kinematically decoupled cores, and any types of counter-rotating components.

The previous meeting of this series held in Naples in 2013. Also related problems were discussed during the Special Session on EWASS-2015, Tenerife.

The conference will focus on the following main topics:
