Meeting of students of astronomy and astrophysics from Czech and Slovak universities

Czech astronomical society & Slovak astronomical society

The main topic of the conference will be the presentation of scientific research activities of young astronomers in various areas of space research. In particular, university students of all levels are invited to the conference to present the results of their research achieved not only during the preparation of their theses. In addition to presentations, participants can also discuss the possibilities of mutual cooperation in the field of astronomical research in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

The meeting of students of astronomy and astrophysics studying at Czech and Slovak universities will take place in the afternoon of June 10th, 2022 in Planetárium Ostrava. The meeting will be a part of the general assembly of the Czech Astronomical Society. The meeting will be followed by a social dinner attended also by senior participants, thus there will be an opportunity for various interactions and discussions. After the meeting, registered students may stay for Saturday and Sunday and attend the other programme of the general assembly (for an extended fee), which will include several talks given by professional astronomers. Please note that the official meeting language for Saturday and Sunday is Czech. Those staying for Saturday and Sunday MUST fill the return!

When: June 10th, 2022, 13:00-17:00
Where: Planetárium Ostrava
Accommodation: A number of rooms were reserved at the dormitory of the Vysoká škola báňská - Technická univerzita Ostrava. The dorm is in the walking distance from Planetárium. The price is 500 CZK per night. For those coming from a large distance it is also possible to arrange the accomodation for the night Thursday/Friday (June 9th/June 10th).

Presentation guidlines

An active participation of the students is expected. Participants will inform the audience about their topic/research in the oral presentation with the length of 12 minutes plus 3 minutes for the immediate questions. Participants have to use the computer in Planetárium. It offers Windows, PowerPoint and PDF viewers. We are also considering to have posters to be displayed during all 3 days. Participants are encouraged to send their presentations beforehand by email.
