EUCARA-2021 Web Conference – Call for Participation
EUCARA, the European Conference on Amateur Radio Astronomy, is the biennial conference for amateur radio astronomers, organised in Europe. The last conference was held in 2018 in Stockert, Germany, at the site of the Astropeiler Radio Telescope. The next conference would have been held by CAMRAS in 2020 at the site of the Dwingeloo Radio Telescope. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was decided to postpone this conference to 2021. Due to ongoing travel restrictions the CAMRAS organising committee has now decided to organise the conference as an online edition of EUCARA:
EUCARA-2021 Web Conference, on Saturday, April 17, 2021 (the 65th anniversary of the inauguration of the Dwingeloo Radio Telescope).
(Deadline for registration for participation: April 4, 2021)
The conference will consist of a keynote talk, and a series of presentations on
- radio astronomical observing techniques
- radio astronomical observations
- radio astronomical instrumentation
- the history of radio astronomy
- astronomy related phenomena in the Earth’s atmosphere, such as, but not limited to, meteorites and auroras.
You can register by sending an email to info [at] eucara [dot] nl. Registration is free of charge. After registration, you will receive the technical details for participating in the conference.
EUCARA-2021 Web Conference – Call for Presentations
You are invited to submit an abstract for a presentation at the EUCARA-2021 Web Conference. For topics see the list in the Call for Participation. Please note that the abstracts will be subjected to a blind review. Abstracts should therefore include a separate cover page listing the presenter and possible co-authors, which should not be mentioned in the abstract. The abstract should be at most one A4, using at least an 11pt font size using single line spacing. The timeslot for a presentation is 15 minutes long, followed by a short discussion. We prefer that you prerecord your presentation and upload it to the EUCARA-2021 organisation.
Some important dates for the EUCARA-2021 Web Conference:
- January 25, 2021: deadline for submitting abstracts
- February 5, 2021: notification of acceptance
- March 29, 2021: deadline for submitting the pre-recorded presentation.
