Advances in Solar Research at Eclipses, from Ground and from Space
Bucharest, Romania August 9 - 20, 1999
Organizing Committee :
Madga Stavinschi (Romania, co-director), Jean-Paul Zahn (France, co-director), Petr Heinzel (Czech Republic), Zadig Mouradian (France), Jay Pasachoff (USA).
The goal of this Institute is to present the most recent results in solar physics which have been obtained from ground, from space and during eclipses, at the location - Bucharest - where the last total eclipse of the millennium has its maximum duration.
The ASI is aimed at scientists of postdoctoral level who wish to learn of recent developments, but it will not exclude students who are about to obtain a PhD. The two first days will be devoted in part to preparing the observation of the eclipse; the lectures will be given by leading specialists in the field.
There will be no living expenses nor registration fee at the charge of the participants, and a number of travel grants are available for those who have insufficient support from their home institution.
