Invitation Aspekt 2018

From June 15 to June 17 2018, the VdS section SPECTROSKOPY will organize their annual
Spectroscopy Conference, this time in the rooms of the Society of Physics in
Frankfurt. . We are happy to invite all astronomers
interested in spectroscopy, especially beginners and young colleagues to take part
in this conference. A VdS membership is not necessary.
Based on lectures, a poster session and a demonstration of different devices
we will have a friendly exchange and discussion about questions and problems
related to spectroscopy.

Place of the Meeting
Place of the Meeting are the rooms of the Society of Physics in Frankfurt,
Robert-Mayer-Straße 2 4. The Society of Physics is a direct neighbour of the
Senckenberg museum and has been founded in 1824 after a proposal of
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. The panoramic view over the Skyline from the
observatory on the roof of the building is unique. For the accommodation,
we have booked a limited quota of rooms in the “Mercure Hotel & Residenz Frankfurt”
(Voltastraße 32, 60486 Frankfurt am Main). The hotel is within walking distance (10 min)
to the conference site. We kindly ask you to register yourself at the hotel using the
keyword “Aspekt 2018” and to pay during check-out (tel.: (+49)69 79269).
For registration a credit card number will be requested.

Transport Connection
We have selected Frankfurt as central meeting place in Germany, which has also a good
international connection via airport and central ICE railway station. For all car drivers,
a good accessibility is guaranteed by connection to the highways A3 / A5 and A648.

for participation in the service during the coffee breaks, lunch and the Saturday

Conference Program
On the evening of Friday evening, starting at 07:00 pm we start to meet in the hotel
for an optional dinner. With a beer or a glass of wine we take the opportunity to get
to know each other and to have a first discussion. On Sunday morning we plan to offer
a second lecture track for beginners which will be in parallel to some advanced lectures.
Further information about the program, state of the registration and possible excursion
destinations will be posted on our website .
Conference languages are German and English. You can find a permanent exchange for the
preparation and further activities in the forum of the specialist group: . Please consider to donate a few Euro to our
Youth Fund (collected during the conference in cash).
