16-19 June 2013

Catania, Sicily


The 2013 SPICAV/SPICAM Team Meeting will take place in Catania, Sicily (Italy) during the third week of June, from June 16 (in the afternoon) to June 19 (finishing at midday), just after the International Venus Workshop held in the same city the week before.

Venue: The meeting will be held at the Il Principe hotel, which is one of the hotels proposed by the organizers of the International Venus Workshop. The hotel is offering special prices for rooms that would be booked in relation to our team meeting. The easiest way is to directly book your rooms through the hotel:

Il Principe Hotel Catania
Via Alessi, 2495124 Catania Sicily Italy
Tel 0039 (0) 95 25 00 345 - Fax 0039 (0) 95 32 57 99

Accomodation: full information can be found on the page prepared for the International Science Workshop.

Agenda: As in the previous years, different topics will be covered, related to the science performed using SPICAM and SPICAV data, or linked to these instruments and their missions, future missions (ExoMars, Maven), data interpretation and modelling, ...

Final agenda : timing includes 10 min for questions and discussion. Please check also the Participants List if you intend to attend the meeting, as we need to confim the number of attendees to the hotel.

A printable version is also available here.
