We are organizing a symposium to honor Prof. Wing-Huen Ip on the occasion of his 70th birthday and pay tribute to his scientific achievements. The meeting will address a diverse range of subjects and objects in the Solar system and beyond. It aims at bringing together senior and junior scientists and students as well to encourage further collaborations as demonstrated so well by Prof. Ip throughout his career.
Although the detailed schedule is under development, the scientific program includes planets, comets, asteroids and other solar system objects, physics of the heliosphere, exoplanets, astronomy of stars and galaxies, and astrophysics in general. We solicit presentations on these and related topics.
There will be a welcome party and a celebratory banquet, the detailed schedule will be announced soon.
We plan to publish a proceeding of the symposium. Guidelines for submission will be available in the second announcement.
The regular registration fee of the symposium is NTD 3500 (about USD 110), and the student registration fee is NTD 1500 (about USD 50). The fee includes the banquet and coffee.
Registration deadline: Jun. 15th, 2017.
Abstract submission deadline: Mar. 31st, 2017.
