Having all the details confirmed about our next International Meteor Conference we invite you to take a look at the 2014 IMC website: http://www.imo.net/imc2014. Help us to bring meteor observers together and share this announcement with your national, regional or local astronomy association, your Facebook friends or other social media. Help us to get this message spread among all meteor observers.
The 33rd IMC will take place in Giron, France, from Thursday 18 till Sunday 21 September 2014.
Giron is a small village located in the south of the Jura Mountains close to Geneva, the region is easily reachable by air (Geneva or Lyon airport), by train (TGV high speed train from Paris and InterCity trains from Geneva railway station) and by car (highway A40 Lyon-Chamonix).
Participants will be accommodated mainly at "Chalet de la Fauconière" a huge chalet with 150 beds, lecture rooms, bars, etc. Another structure called "Centre Accueil Montagnard" is also available at 1 km from this Chalet. A visit to CERN will be organized on Saturday afternoon.
The 2014 IMC registration fee is €170 for a shared room in a dormitory, €195 for a double room and €220 for a single room. These reduced rates for early bookers are valid on condition the payment is made no later than on 30 June 2014. After this date all fees are €15 more expensive. The deadline for registration will be 31 August 2014. The LOC can be contacted via email on firstname.lastname@example.org. This is the third time the IMC is organized in France.
Once people experience an IMC they want to be at the next conference while for those who never experienced this event some extra motivation may be required. For people interested in meteors there is no better way to experience meteor astronomy than the IMC. A conference is about lectures and posters, but there is much more such as the interaction between meteor enthusiasts during the informal socializing. A touch of what to expect from the presentations can be found here: http://www.imo.net/imc2012/proceedings, impressions of the previous IMC can be watched here: http://www.imo.net/imo/imc/2013 or if you are curious about all previous IMC’s, look here: http://www.imo.net/imo/imc/history.
We look forward to welcome you at our next IMC in Giron, France.
