Hi,

already before the announcement will go to the world tomorrow, I want to bring to your attention that the website for MACE2006 has been updated.

http://www.minorplanets.org/

For those who don't know, MACE was the idea of Korado and someone whose name I don't remember right now... and thus the first edition was held in Visnjan in 2002 ( http://www.astro.hr/mace2002/ ). After 2003 on Mallorca, 2004 in Italy and one year break, we are now looking forward to the 2006 edition in Vienna. The topic of the conference are asteroids and comets in general. There are four sessions:

Session 1: Astrometry and Celestial mechanics
Session 2: Physical Study of Asteroids and Comets
Session 3: Instrumentation and Techniques
Session 4: Workshops and Practice

I hope to see some of you in Vienna, maybe with a talk! Wink

Ciao,
Reiner
P.S.: Keep checking the page (Program/Abstracts). New talks will be added as they are submitted.

Those VEP students who will come to MACE in Vienna might be interested in the following workshop, which was just announced today:

Internet Based Remote Observing A Practical Demonstration
by Robin Lauryssen-Mitchell, Amateur Astronomer

The use of the Internet to allow astronomical observations to be made at remote sites is a rapidly growing field. In this workshop I will be demonstrating how different commercial vendor's systems work and describing my experiences with them. The systems demonstrated may include RAS (New Mexico), Faulkes (Hawaii), Slooh (Canary Isles), Bradford (Canary Isles) and Red Mountain (simulated observatory).

Due to weather conditions it may only be possible to simulate the use of the RAS and Faulkes facilities. Sample images will be available.

Due to time zone constraints only observation requests can be made with the Slooh and Bradford facilities. It will not be possible to return images from these facilities. Sample images will be available.

Red Mountain is a simulated observatory. The images returned are generated using scatter-plots based on data from a star catalogue. The primary purpose of Red Mountain is a technology demonstrator.
