The LOC of the "European Week of Astronomy and Space Science"

The "European Week of Astronomy and Space Science"
(JENAM2009) will be held from 20 - 23 April 2009 at the University of
Hertfordshire in the UK (30km north of London). There will be EAS and
RAS Prize Lectures, plenary lectures, EAS Symposia, and a multitude of
parallel sessions. ESA and ESO have each provided substantial
contributions to the programme, emphasizing the "Joint European" aspect
of the "National Astronomy Meeting". In addition OPTICON, RadioNet and
ASTRONET are very much involved. Moreover, the UK Solar Physics
Conference (UKSP) and MIST (Magnetosphere, Ionosphere, Solar
Terrestrial) spring meeting will be celebrated as part of the "European
Week of Astronomy and Space Science", resulting in an event with the
broadest possible appeal.

There will be ample outreach activities in this International Year of
Astronomy with public lectures scheduled for each evening of the
conference, plus a special "School's Day" (click on Schools on the Menu
bar on the left hand side of the Home page).

There will be seven EAS Symposia on the following topics:

* The next era in radio astronomy: the pathway to SKA
* The standard cosmological models - successes and challenges
* Understanding substellar populations and atmospheres: from brown
dwarfs to exo-planets
* The life cycle of dust
* Multi-wavelength high redshift surveys
* Three decades of gravitational lenses
* The IYA 2009 in Europe

Early registration is open now. After 9th March 2009 fees will increase
by 25%. Please consult the registration page for further details.

We look forward to welcoming you at the University of Hertfordshire in
