The term “Galactic Center” refers to the central few hundred parsecs of our Milky Way Galaxy. This special area of our Galaxy contains various energetic phenomena surrounding our central supermassive black hole that also occur in the nuclear regions of many other distant galaxies. Galactic Center astronomy is crucial to understanding more distant galaxies, and is now being revolutionized by the amazing data obtained with new observatories and instruments. The “Galactic Center Workshop 2019 - New Horizons in Galactic Center Astronomy and Beyond” conference was held at Keio University, Yokohama, during 21-24 October, 2019. These proceedings summarize the state-of-the-art knowledge of the Galactic Center as presented at that meeting.
