EWASS 2015 en La Laguna

  • Categoría La SEA
  • La European Week of Astronomy and Space Science (EWASS) del próximo año tendrá lugar en La Laguna del 22 al 26 de junio de 2015 y está siendo organizada por la European Astronomical Society (EAS) en colaboración con nuestra sociedad (SEA), el Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) y la Universidad de la Laguna. Desde su cambio de formato, estas reuniones, a las que acudenmente más de 500 astrónomos, se están convirtiendo en un foro de referencia para la astronomía europea, y esta es la primera ocasión en que se celebra en España (después de la JENAM de hace 10 años en Granada). Ya existe una página web donde se irá incorporando información sobre la reunión.

    ,

    De momento ya se ha abierto el plazo para solicitar la organización de simposios y sesiones especiales durante la Semana (ver al final del mensaje). Entendemos que esta es una buena ocasión para que los grupos de investigación de nuestro país, junto con sus colaboradores europeos, participen activamente en la organización de dichos simposios y sesiones, lo cual contribuirá a mostrar, una vez más, el alto nivel de la investigación astrofísica en España, por lo que os animamos a mandar propuestas antes del 1 de agosto.

    Un cordial saludo,

    , Call for Expressions of Interest to organise Symposia and
    , Special Sessions at EWASS 2015, Tenerife, 22 - 26 June 2015

    ,

    The preparation of the European Week of Astronomy and Space Science (EWASS 2015) to be held in La Laguna, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain on 22-26 June 2015 has started and the website is already set up at: http://eas.unige.ch/EWASS2015/

    ,

    The meeting will be organised at the University of La Laguna's Guajara Campus by the European Astronomical Society (EAS), in collaboration with the Spanish Astronomical Society (SEA), the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias, and the Universidad de La Laguna.

    ,

    We now invite proposals from colleagues who are interested in organising a Symposium or a Special Session.

    ,

    A broad range of parallel sessions can be accommodated as:

    ,

    (A) Symposia
    , whichly consist of up to 6 blocks of 1.5 hours, stretching over 2 days, although exceptionally and in well-justified cases these symposia can be slightly longer,

    ,

    (B) Special Sessions
    , consisting of up to 3 blocks of 1.5 hours on the same day.

    ,

    Proposers should strive to make their proposals of interest to large fractions of the European astronomical community. All proposals should be submitted as plain text email, with of the order of 500 words, and should include the following information:

    ,

    1. Title and type of proposed session
    , 2. Summary of the goal(s) of the session
    , 3. Names of organisers (at least two persons)
    , 4. Justification for proposed duration of the session (how many 1.5-hour blocks?)
    , 5. Anticipated audience size
    , 6. Possible review talks and possible speakers
    , 7. Whether or not you plan to accept posters

    ,

    Organisers of EWASS sessions are benefitting from the logistic support of the EWASS conference including the disposal of the venue room, registration handling, the portal for abstract submission and reviewing, and the hosting of a web page on the EWASS website. Organisers should not count on additional support from EWASS for attending the conference, neither for themselves nor for their invited speakers.

    ,

    Note that the IAU has already selected the Symposia and Focus Meetings for the IAU General Assembly in Hawaii, in August 2015, see: http://www.iau.org/science/meetings/future/

    ,

    Proposals should be sent to the SOC Chairs:
    , Cathie Clarke < cclarke @ ast.cam.ac.uk > and Johan Knapen < jhk @ iac.es >, for review by the SOC.

    ,

    Applicants will be notified in September about the outcome of the selection.
    , Individuals within the European Astronomy and Space Science communities, as well as EU sponsored networks, are strongly encouraged to propose and organise sessions.

    ,

    The deadline for submitting Expressions of Interest is: Friday, 1 August 2014.
