http://www.cometinterceptor.space/ Comet Interceptor Full Team Meeting
Place: IAA-CSIC
Summary:
The Comet Interceptor mission was selected by ESA in June 2019 to combine this breakthrough in comet discoveries with a compact, agile set of spacecraft that can reveal to us a huge amount about a pristine comet likely entering the inner Solar System for the first time. Although far rarer than long-period comets, Comet Interceptor will also have the capability of encountering an interstellar object passing through our Solar System if such an object is found on a suitable trajectory. The IAA-CSIC will host a full team meeting in December 2nd-3rd 2019.
Date: December, 2nd- 3rd 2019

Tenth Gammapy Coding Sprint
Place: IAA-CSIC
Summary:
Gammapy is an open-source Python package for gamma-ray astronomy built on Numpy and Astropy. It is a prototype for the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) science tools, and can also be used to analyse data from existing gamma-ray telescopes. The tenth meeting of the Gammapy community will take place at the IAA-CSIC, in Granada (Spain) from November 18th to 22th 2019.

9th ACS Science Team Meeting
Place: IAA-CSIC
Summary:
The 9th ACS Science Team meeting will be held in the IAA-CSIC on November 14th to 15th 2019. ACS is an instrument which, together with NOMAD, is on board the Trace Gas Orbiter, currently in full operation around Mars.

SUNRISE III Technical Meeting
Place: IAA-CSIC
Summary:
The Antarctic stratospheric balloon SUNRISE is a collaboration between Germany, the United States and Spain which carry on board a new technology C/Si C solar telescope (the primary mirror has 1 m aperture and only weights 60 kg). The telescope carries three main post-focal instruments: a spectro-polarimeter, a camera with a universal birefringent filter and a magnetometer. The IMaX magnetometer is entirely Spanish and based on liquid crystal optical retarder (ROCLI) technology, which is also Spanish. It is being developed by a consortium of four institutions: the IAC, INTA, GACE, in Valencia, and the IAA. In this meeting, held at the IAA-CSIC in November 11th-15th 2019, a technical revision of the three instruments of the mission (IMaX+, SCIP and SUSI) will be performed.

http://evnsymp2018.iaa.es/ 14th EVN Symposium & Users Meeting
Place: Parque de las Ciencias (Granada)
Summary:
The 14th European VLBI Network (EVN) Symposium and Users Meeting will be hosted by the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía-CSIC in Granada (Spain) on behalf of the EVN Consortium Board of Directors. The meeting will take place on October 8-11, 2018 at the main auditorium of the Parque de las Ciencias of Granada, the science museum of the city, within walking distance from the historic areas of Granada. This biennial meeting is the main forum for discussion of the latest very long baseline interferometric scientific results and technical and technological developments within the EVN member countries. At this meeting there will also be a chance for user input into the future Science Vision for the EVN.

http://spg.iaa.es/hinode12/ Hinode 12 - The many suns
Place: Granada Conference Center
Summary:
Hinode is an active mission devoted to the study of the Sun. Launched in 2006, it is still the reference mission for high-resolution measurements of the solar atmosphere, specializing in visible spectropolarimetry, EUV spectroscopy and X-ray imaging. Its unique capabilities remain unsurpassed and explain the very high, sustained scientific return of the mission. Hinode science meetings are organized yearly to bring together the Hinode, IRIS and ground-based community to discuss recent results and plan coordinated observations. The Hinode-12 meeting will be the sixth of the series to be held in Europe, following Hinode 1 in Dublin (2007), Hinode-4 in Palermo (2010), Hinode 6 in St. Andrews (2012) and Hinode 9 in Belfast (2015).
Date: September, 10th- 13th 2018
