As every year, beginners, advanced and professionals in the field of astrospectroscopy meet for the annual conference of the VdS-spectroscopy group ASpekt 2020.
This year 2020, the conference will take place place at the Johanneum in the centre of Lübeck.
When: Friday, June 12th until Sunday, 14th
Where: Johanneum zu Lübeck, Bei St. Johannis 1-3, 23552 Lübeck
We invite all spectroscopically interested astronomers to this conference, especially beginners and young colleagues. A VdS membership is not necessary. With lectures and a poster and equipment session from the participants we exchange ideas and discuss open questions on spectroscopy.
A permanent exchange for preparation and further activities can be found in the group’s forum.
Collegial discussions between all participants are important and very stimulating for your own work. Therefore we attach great importance to the personal exchange, so that the journey is worthwhile for beginners or advanced. We exchange information about self-made devices and the problems they cause, but also about stellar physics and observations. Always communicated in such a way that as many people as possible take a profit with them. We put together several presentations from the participants and also offer a poster and equipment session in the form of a „market of possibilities“. This gives you ample opportunity for a personal discussion. The evenings together also increase the fun and offer ample opportunity to make new contacts. Please refer to the VdS conference homepage for further information.
Lübeck is a beautiful city and has a lot to offer. Therefore we are working on a social programme in which you are welcome to participate. There may be a small contribution to the costs of the social programme, food and drinks are at your own expense.
On Friday evening we are planning a visit to the non-public areas of the city library in its historical rooms and will take a look at some scientific works of the Middle Ages. Afterwards we will have dinner together.
On Saturday evening we are planning a guided tour of the city and will have dinner together again afterwards.
