75th Anniversary Astronomical Debate Home Page
In April 1920, Harlow Shapley and Heber D. Curtis debated " The Scale of the Universe" in Washington, DC. 75 years later, in April 1995, in commemoration of the `Great Debate', Donald Q. Lamb and Bohdan Paczynski debated " The Distance Scale to Gamma-Ray Bursts" in the same auditorium. Martin Rees moderated. Introductory lectures were gien by Virginia Trimble and Gerald Fishman. The home page makes available a great deal of background information about the 1920 Curtis - Shapley debate suitable for undergraduate lectures wishing to mention the 75th anniversary of this historic astronomical event. - Categories: meetings

Disks, Planetesimals and Planets
Conference on Disks, Planetesimals and Planets, Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife, SPAIN, 24-28 January 2000.
The recent discoveries of extrasolar planets and the progress in studies of disks around pre-main sequence and main sequence stars highlight the need of better understanding the formation and evolution of planetary systems. Many groups and observatories are dedicating important efforts towards these goals. The 1998 international time of the Canary Islands Observatories is fully devoted to studies related to these topics, making use of spectroscopic, polarimetric and photometric techniques in the optical, as well as near-IR photometry. The conference is the frame where the large amount of data collected with the facilities in the Canary Islands will be presented. In addition, contributions from participants addressing theoretical models and observations in all wavelength ranges will provide an updated overview of the field. The conference will last five days (including a free afternoon) and will consist of sessions with invited and contributed talks and poster. Sessions will devoted to: (a) PMS objects: circumstellar (protoplanetary) disks around protostellar objects, PMS stars and Vega-type stars (b) Planetesimals in PMS and MS stellar systems (c) Planets around stars (d) Searches for planets (e) Impact on planetary system studies of future space and ground-based facilities - Categories: meetings

Multiwavelength AGN Surveys (AGN2003)
December 8-12, 2003. Cozumel, Mexico INAOE is pleased to announce this conference within the framework of the "Guillermo Haro Advanced Research Program". The huge amount of data obtained by surveys in all wavebands, from radio to X-rays, has allowed a major progress in the understanding of Active Galactic Nuclei and of their cosmic evolution. This conference is intended to give a broad overview of the recent results obtained by AGN surveys over the whole electromagnetic spectrum. Topics which will be discussed during the conference are: AGN evolution, contribution to the cosmic background, AGN luminosity functions in different wavebands, multiwavelength properties of AGN, unified model and unconventional AGN, connection with the host galaxies, co-evolution of AGN and galaxies, implications for the local density of supermassive black holes. Future AGN surveys planned with forthcoming new observational facilities will also be discussed. - Categories: meetings
