Meeting on Asteroids and Comets in Europe

The conference MACE will take place in and around Višnjan/Tićan, Croatia, on the long weekend of May 21-23, 2010.

From Friday to Sunday

The meeting will start on friday morning and go on until sunday evening. Participants with a long journey will mostly arrive already on thursday evening. Monday after the meeting is a holiday in most European countries, a good possibility therefore to depart stress-free without hurry and to relax before getting into office again on tuesday. We plan to schedule the talks for friday and saturday and keep sunday for an interesting excursion across the Istrian peninsula.

Topics

We welcome contributions in the field of asteroid, comet and meteor research and closely related topics. Contributions by professional astronomers are highly appreciated and we particularly encourage contributions by amateur astronomers and students.
