1. Dark and Quiet Skies for Science and Society

Dear Colleagues,

It is with our pleasure that we invite you to participate in the IAU/UN/IAC “Dark and Quiet Skies for Science and Society” (D&QS) Workshop to take place 5 - 9 October from 15 hr UT to 17 hr UT each day, with Thursday going to 18 hr UT. Following the link below you will find an announcement with more details about the purpose and scope, programme and registration :


The first hour will be on presentations from one of the five working groups each day, focusing on topics of radio astronomy, observational astronomy, dark skies oases, bio-environment and satellite constellations. The second hour will be devoted to discussion. Please note that the format of this Workshop is somehow different from the usual ones in that its "proceedings" are distributed in a draft document that will go out to all registrants on Oct. 2nd. Therefore, we encourage you to attend and lend your voice and valuable input as part of the discussion during the last hour of every day. Remarks from the discussion will be part of the next draft of reports.

Best regards,
Connie Walker, co-chair of the D&QS Workshop, IAU President of B7
Simonetta Di Pippo, co-chair of the D&QS Workshop, Director of UNOOSA
Jose Miguel Espinosa, IAU AGS

2. Atelier HIRES-ELT France, 12-13 Novembre 2020

Nous organisons le premier atelier HIRES-ELT France le 12-13 Novembre 2020. HIRES est un instrument de deuxième génération de l’ELT. C’est un spectrographe à haute-résolution (R = 100,000 et R = 150,000), avec aussi un mode IFU-SCAO. Il couvre le visible et le proche infra-rouge, exactement de 0.35 à 1.8 microns. 

Ce premier atelier a comme objectif de poser les bases pour fédérer la communauté française autour du projet en proposant des discussions autour de thématiques scientifiques qui guident la conception de l’instrument. Ample 

Vous pouvez consulter le site web https://hires2020.sciencesconf.org pour vous inscrire et proposer un contributed talk.
