Scientific Rationale

Since the release of the first EAVN call for proposal in April 2018, the EAVN array is now in its real operation with 10 stations (KaVA, Tianma, Nanshan and Nobeyama). The EAVW-2019 will be the first meeting after this milestone, while an increasing number of exciting results are coming out with KaVA, the core array of EAVN. We will discuss and highlight various science topics studied by EAVN/KaVA as well as by individual VLBI facilities VERA/KVN/CVN/JVN. This will include active galactic nuclei, star formation, evolved stars, astrometry, micro quasars, pulsars, transients, multi-messenger science etc. We will also highlight various ongoing developments of the array capability and instruments as well as the near-future expansion of the network into Ibaraki, Yamaguchi, Kunming, Thailand, Italy, Australia etc. Moreover, the VLBI community in East Asia is increasingly involved with EHT and SKA. Therefore we will also discuss how EAVN can play a unique role in the era of such huge facilities. This will include "EAVN-high" that includes JCMT/GLT and "EAVN-low" that includes FAST, as well as joining a global VLBI network.
