« After-Aussois Venus 2010 » workshop

 

We proposed an informal gathering of the ground-based + modeling community in Paris Observatory in June 28-29. This will be an opportunity to further discuss after the Aussois international conference (20-26 June) our coordination plans, modeling, ground-based observation 'wish-lists', future instrumentation, as well as any other topic of interest, in the 'come-together' format we successfully experienced earlier in the year. It took place in historical Paris Observatory (est. 1667), its nice surroundings and gardens, as well as exquisite weather at the end of June. Europlanet NA-1 activity (Infrastructure networking) supported this meeting.
