1. Award of the First Tycho Brahe Prize to Prof. Dr. G?ran Scharmer. 

The EAS is pleased to announce the award of the First Tycho Brahe Prize to 
Prof. Dr. G?ran Scharmer. Prof.  Scharmer is one of the leading solar physicists
with a remarkable track record in advancing ground-based solar observations.
The unprecedented sharpness of solar images taken with telescopes that 
Scharmer developed is currently leading to new insights into the physics of the 
photosphere and chromosphere of our Sun. G?ran Scharmer?is director of the
Institute for Solar Physics of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and 
professor at Stockholm University, Sweden. The prize will be awarded at a
ceremony at the upcoming JENAM 2008 in Vienne, September 8-12.

2. Announcement of EAS Symposium on "Planet Formation and Extra-Solar Planets"

Planetary Formation is one of the most exciting challenges of the astrophysics 
of the 21st century. Recent and forthcoming observational facilities (eg VLT,
VLTI, ALMA...) will unveil the properties of the close circumstellar material
around Young Stellar Objects, where planetary formation is thought to occur.

An EAS SYmposium which will be held as part of JENAM 2008 in Vienna,
September 8-12, that will be devoted to this topic. Details on how to register
for this symposium can be found here:

3. Announcement of EAS Symposium on "Matter Cycles of Galaxies in Clusters"

The SOC of EAS Symposium on "Matter Cycles of Galaxies in Clusters" is pleased
to announce that registration is now open and that they invite the submission 
of Abstracts. The symposium will be held as part of JENAM 2008 in Vienna, 
September 8-12. More details can be found at:

4. Onassis Summer School in Physics, Heraklion, Crete,Greece, June 30 - July 4, 2008

This year's Onassis Summer School in Physics is devoted to: 
"COSMOLOGY: AN ASTROPHYSICAL PERSPECTIVE".
Lecturers are: John Mather (NASA, Nobel Prize 2006 in Physics), 
Tom Abel (Stanford University), Wayne Hu (University of Chicago), 
Robert Kirshner (Harvard University), Jim Peebles (Princeton University), 
Paul Steinhardt (Princeton University), and J. Craig Wheeler (University of Texas).

The Onassis Foundation provides financial support for up to 50 Greek and
30 International qualified students (postgraduate and advanced undergraduate)
for their travel and local expenses.
