SEA Meeting 2018
The Spanish Astronomical Society (SEA) will celebrate its XIII Biannual Meeting in the city of Salamanca from 16th to 20th July 2018. Our conference will be held in the famous Hospedería del Colegio Arzobispo Fonseca, as one of the acts belonging to the 800th anniversary of the University of Salamanca.
As usual, the base idea supporting this event is to create a scientific discussion forum where the Spanish astronomical community and its guests could present and debate its latest results, promote new collaborations and prepare themselves to face future challenges. We believe this conference should be a meeting point where every astronomer has a say and where our young members could advance in their research career. The meeting’s format is divided in plenary and parallel sessions, whose topics are of the interest of our community. We would like to emphasize that, for the first time, there will be a plenary session on the communication and teaching of Astronomy.
Moreover, because not only the geographic closeness but also our strong cultural links, the invited country for the present edition is Portugal. We expect to host a large number of our fellow Portuguese astronomers in order to increase the already existent collaborations and also to hopefully starting new ones.
