A microcosm of sensations and avors in the center of the planet that is Ecuador. A unique country where all cultures, peoples and landscapes of Latin America merge to form the world's most perfect scent. Ecuador is located on the equator in northwestern South America. It shares its northern border with Colombia, Peru on the east and south, and on the west by the Pacifc Ocean. Four worlds converge in its territory, from the warm Pacifc Coast drenched that gradually rises toward the snowy heights and temperate valleys of the Andes mountains to nally introduce the green carpet of Amazonian biodiversity. All as a prelude to a sublime reward: the Galapagos Islands.
The IAU Symposium entitled "Extragalactic Jets from every angle" (Galapagos 2014), will take place in the Puerto Ayora town, Capital of Galapagos Province of Ecuador and located in the Santa Cruz island, the second largest of the Galapagos islands of Ecuador. Puerto Ayora is the most populous town in the Galapagos Islands, with more than 12,000 inhabitants. This town is the capital of Santa Cruz Island, and it has the best developed infrastructure in the archipelago. This is a safe tourist town, and offers many activities and attractions to the visitors.
The symposium venue is the auditorium of the Santa Cruz Municipality, with a capacity for 250 people, located in the very center of the town (between the Grand Lobo de Mar Hotel and the office of TAME, an Ecuadorian airline). The conference is organized with the support of the mayor of the city and his administrative collaborators.
