Spectroscopic Workshop


Right before the IMC, a Spectroscopic Workshop will be organized at the conference venue. The Workshop is limited to experts and will focus on the discussion of spectroscopic methodology and data format. Spectroscopy in meteor observing is an emerging technology in which several research groups have meanwhile gathered considerable expertise, and the time is now ready to bring this expertise together.

Practical information and program

The Spectroscopic Workshop will start at 14:00 on Wednesday, August 29th, and end at 18:00 on Thursday, August 30th. A detailed program will be provided in due time. Experts in spectroscopic observations and/or analysis are encouraged to participate.


Participation in the Spectroscopic Workshop is free. The extra night of August 29-30 and the extra meals (lunch and dinner on August 29th and lunch on August 30th) should be arranged with the hotel by the participants themselves, just like any other additional nights or meals you may wish. If you mention “IMC2018” while booking, a double room for one night costs 50€ plus 0.33€ tax (including breakfast), and a meal costs 8.50€. These prices are not guaranteed if you use third parties such as booking.com to book the hotel. If you would like to share a doubled room during the workshop, please mail this request to imc2018@imo.net before booking the room. The LOC can then assist you with finding a roommate with whom you can share the room cost.


If you want to participate, please answer "Yes" to “Do you wish to participate to the SPECTROSCOPIC WORKSHOP on August 29th-30th?” on the IMC registration form.

People who have already registered for the IMC before this option was available may contact the LOC.
