    Notes

  • G. Sostero and E. Guido have scheduled remote observing time at RAS in New Mexico for all three days. They plan to take images of the fragmenting comet 73P/Schwassmann-Wachmann. Short news briefings on the development of this comet, with images from the previous night, respectively, are planned for each of the three days of the meeting.

  • Contributors of workshops and oral presentations are requested to check this page for details on the organisation of the talks and the available hardware.
