Internationale Beziehungen in der Astronomie
--------------------------------------------

Kolloquium des Arbeitskreises Astronomiegeschichte im
Rahmen der Jahrestagung der Astronomischen Gesellschaft

Montag, 18. September 2000, Lilienthal bei Bremen, Deutschland


Die naechste Internationale Wissenschaftliche Jahrestagung der
Astronomischen Gesellschaft (AG) findet in Bremen statt. Der Arbeitskreis
Astronomiegeschichte plant in diesem Zusammenhang sowie anlaesslich des
Gruendungsjubilaeums der 'Vereinigten Astronomischen Gesellschaft' ein
Kolloquium "Internationale Beziehungen in der Astronomie", das am Montag,
dem 18. September 2000, stattfindet. Vortraege, die sich auf den
Tagungsort Lilienthal oder die Zeit von Olbers, Schroeter und Bessel
beziehen, sind besonders willkommen.

Tagungsort ist Murkens Hof, Klosterstr. 25, 28865 Lilienthal (etwa 15 km
ausserhalb von Bremen; Strassenbahnlinie 4 ab Bremen Hbf bis Horn, dort
umsteigen in Buslinie 30 bis Lilienthal Mitte). Beginn ist um 10.00 Uhr,
Ende gegen 17 Uhr. Im Anschluss findet eine Mitgliederversammlung des
Arbeitskreises statt, Gaeste sind herzlich eingeladen. Waehrend des
Treffens besteht die Moeglichkeit, einzelne astronomiehistorische Buecher
zu erwerben.

Koordinatoren des Kolloquiums sind:
Prof. Dr. Gudrun Wolfschmidt, Tel. (040) 42838-5262,

Keeping time: a celebration of the year 2000
--------------------------------------------

By Adam Perkins, Cambridge, UK

(Aus: Electronic Newsletter for the History of Astronomy, No. 42,
May 19, 2000, Item 1)


In commemoration of the calendar's turn to the year 2000 an exhibition
`Keeping time', on display from March until September, will draw on the
enormous wealth of material in the University Library's collections to
reflect many aspects of the human appreciation of time and its passage.

One large collection of manuscripts in the Library is the Royal Greenwich
Observatory Archives. To the westerner, the words Greenwich and time are
closely linked. In the seventeenth century, following the observation of
the regularity of the pendulum, European mechanical clocks reached new
levels of accuracy. The accurate measure of time lead directly to accurate
astronomical observations, and the modern science of astrometry, the exact
measurement of the positions of stars and celestial bodies in the sky, was
born. From seventeenth century astronomy sprang the enormous development
of the physical sciences progressing since then.

But the precise regularity of the atomic clocks giving us our time today is
not the only manner in which we can perceive time. In the middle ages the
daylight was sometimes merely divided into two, the fore and after noon; or
the time between sunrise and sunset was divided into twelve equal parts,
parts which varied in length of time throughout the year. The solar year
is central to life on Earth but calendars in different cultures vary. It
is the lunar cycle which gives us the very word `month' and the calendar
in, for instance, Islam is a lunar calendar.

In literature, Donne and Shakespeare lament the passing of the years while
the idea of moving through time has stimulated authors who have created
works with little or no relation to scientific ideas of time and
time-keeping. Time travel has been a device used in children's fiction,
romance and historical novels. The aim of the exhibition `Keeping time' is
to explore some of the many ways in which humankind has sought to grasp and
use the idea of time and our place in time.

International Solar Eclipse Conference
--------------------------------------

(Aus: Electronic Newsletter for the History of Astronomy, No. 41,
May 16, 2000, Item 3)


Title: A crossroad on physics and eclipses of the sun


Venue:  Elzenveld, Antwerp Belgium

Dates: 14 - 15 October, 2000


Introduction:

Over the last years, there have been dramatic changes in solar eclipse
travelling. Solar Eclipse specialists meet most of the time in the shadow
of the Moon. Solar Eclipse meetings out of totality are rare, or are
mainly focused on solar physics. The Solar Eclipse Mailing List and the
Solar Eclipse Newsletter has been successful as a vehicle in bringing
together solar eclipse enthusiast, professionals and amateurs alike.

Because there is no central eclipse in 2000 we have been presented with a
perfect opportunity for an International Solar Eclipse Conference.

We have had this project in mind for some time, but mainly due to planning
eclipse travels it has been put on hold. The aim of the conference is to
bring together professionals and amateurs, addicts, enthusiasts, and
chasers, as with the mailing list and the newsletter, sharing information,
knowledge, and experience.


Organisers: Patrick Poitevin and Joanne Edmonds

Purpose:

Two days of lectures will be given in each of the disciplines:
predictions, mathematics, solar physics, weather forecasting, eye safety,
diameter measuring, edge and central, and ancient eclipse research. Of
course the August 99 eclipse and the forthcoming Africa 2001 eclipse should
be great topics of discussion, along with the once-in-a-blue-eclipse
eclipse of July 2000, five years of SOHO and the Solar Maximum. Lectures
and poster sessions by professionals and by amateurs.


Guest speakers:

We have invited ten international guest speakers, to give a lecture on
their own specialised subject. These ten professional lectures are expect
to last approximately 45 minutes and the smaller presentations from others
to last about 30 minutes. We have the agreement from those guest speakers
and we can ensure they are the ten masters in their discipline.

Mokre from Vienna, and Robert Derome, an art historian from Montreal.

The registration fee which will include lunches and dinners during the
symposium is $285 (Canadian). The registration deadline is 8 September
2000. (If space is still available after that date, the fee will be $325.)
Participation will be limited to 75 persons.

The Inspiration of Astronomical Phenomena - Third Conference
------------------------------------------------------------

Palermo (Sicily), Italy - December 31, 2000-January 6, 2001

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS AND PAPERS


Dear Colleagues:

We wish to inform you of the up-coming Third International Conference on
The Inspiration of Astronomical Phenomena ("INSAP III"). This meeting will
explore mankind's fascination with the sky by day and by night, which has
been a strong and often dominant element in human life and culture. The
conference will provide a meeting place for artists and scholars from a
variety of disciplines (including Archaeology and Anthropology, Art and Art
History, Classics, History and Prehistory, the Physical and Social
Sciences, Mythology and Folklore, Philosophy, and Religion) to present and
discuss their studies of the influences that astronomical phenomena have
had on mankind.

The first two meetings (Castel Gandolfo, 1994; Malta, 1999) successfully
brought together for the first time people from just such a range of
disciplines to address topics of common interest. Papers from the first
meeting were published in "Vistas in Astronomy" (1995) and in "Leonardo"
(1996), and those from the second will appear shortly in book form. These
papers (described on our Website under "the First (or Second) INSAP
Conference") give an idea of the range of subjects presented at these
meetings. A similar publication is planned for the third meeting.

The meeting will be held overlooking the Mediterranean, a few minutes from
the center of Palermo, and will start with a New Year's Eve (and Millennium
Eve) banquet December 31, 2000. The meeting rooms will include ample space
for display (and sale) of works of art by attendees.

Full information on INSAP III and on the earlier conferences, and an
application form for the upcoming meeting, can be found on our Website
(http://ethel.as.arizona.edu/~white/insap) or obtained from the
undersigned. Attendance will be by invitation from among those applying.
All presentations and discussions will be in English.

This Conference is sponsored by the Palermo Observatory, the Vatican
Observatory, and the Steward Observatory, and is hosted by the Palermo
Observatory as part of the bicentennial of the discovery there of the first
asteroid, Ceres, on the nights of January 1-3, 1801.

Please circulate or post this announcement.
