›International Meteor Conference 2012
Every year, the International Meteor Organization (IMO) organizes the International Meteor Conference (IMC). This conference deals with all aspects of meteor observation as well as the underlying physics and is aimed at both amateurs and professionals.
The International Meteor Organization (IMO) will hold the 31st annual International Meteor Conference (IMC) on La Palma, Canary Islands, Spain, from 20 till 23 September, 2012. The conference will be organized by the Astro Travels agency in collaboration with the Cabildo of La Palma island authority which will sponsor this event.
The IMC 2012 will include an excursion to the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory (ORM) with a visit of three of its largest telescopes, among which the Gran Telescopio de Canarias (GTC) currently the largest optical telescope worldwide (10.4m diam). Given the beauty of La Isla Bonita, the organizers will offer up to seven optional extra days before the IMC to include some optional excursions in order to visit the most extraordinary places of La Palma.
