1. EAS membership dues

The EAS Secretariat would like to remind its members to pay their membership fee.
Invoices were sent out in late autumn 2007, inviting payment for the 2008 
membership fee and any arrears which might have accumulated.

Payment information and a payment form is available at:

	?http://eas.unige.ch/eas/members_pay.jsp

To those of you who have already paid either by bank transfer, credit card or 
through an affiliated society, the EAS expresses its gratitude for your 
continued support. The main, and almost only source of income of the EAS, is 
made up of your annual individual membership contribution.

For any questions regarding membership or payment of membership fees, please 
feel welcome to contact the Secretariat at eas AT unige.ch

2. XX Canary Islands Winter School Of Astrophysics "Local Group Cosmology"

The XX Canary Islands Winter School of Astrophysics (WS), organized by the 
Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias (IAC), is dedicated to the study of 
Local Group Cosmology. It will be held on Tenerife, Spain, November 17th-28th, 2008

The primary aim of the XX Winter School is to provide a wide-ranging and
up-to-date overview of the theoretical, experimental and analytical tools
necessary for carrying out front-line research in the study of the structure,
formation and evolution of Local Group galaxies, based on the results of the
latest cosmological simulations. The School is particularly designed to offer
young researchers tips and guidelines to help them direct their future research
towards these themes, which are among the most important in modern astrophysics.

3. Sixth IRAM millimeter interferometry school

IRAM organizes this year its sixth millimeter interferometry school. It will be
held on October 6-10th, 2008 at IRAM Grenoble, France. It is intended for
PhD students, post-docs and scientists who want to acquire a good knowledge of
interferometry and data reduction techniques at millimeter wavelengths.

4. Call for participation: European FP7 proposal on Integrated Activities for
   the High-Energy Astrophysics Domain (AHEAD)

There is an emergent need to coordinate efforts in high-energy astrophysics at
the European level. In January 2008, an ad hoc Steering Committee (SC), 
composed of several members of the high-energy astrophysics community, was
formed to discuss the opportunity for a European Framework Programme 7 proposal
entitled Integrated Activities for the High-Energy Astrophysics Domain (AHEAD).

This proposal will be submitted as a response to the Spring 2010 call for
bottom-up integrated activities, in the framework of the FP7 Capacities Work
Programme for support to existing research infrastructures. To ensure that the
needs of the high-energy astrophysics community are adequately represented, the
SC invites the community to respond massively to the present Call and to 
participate in the preparation and the definition of the proposal.

DEADLINE: August 31, 2008

Details of the call can be found on the AHEAD website at:

5. Tenagra II Research Facility

Michael Schwartz, director of the Tenagra Observatory would like to announce 
the following:

"The Tenagra II?0.81-m automated telescope is for sale.? This is a 100% 
professionally prescribed system for 8 years. 

We would like the academic world to know about this as we are quite sure that 
a university, college or consortium may wish to purchase it."
