1. Rozhen National Astronomical Observatory: Thirty Years Eyes on the Sky

In 2011 astronomers in Bulgaria are celebrating the thirtieth
anniversary of the founding of the National Astronomical Observatory
Rozhen. To celebrate this occasion, an international conference is
being organised in Smolyan, 26-29 September, 2011, entitled:

"Rozhen National Astronomical Observatory: Thirty Years Eyes on the Sky"

Registration is now open. The dedicated website can be found here:

2. International Workshop on Stellar Spectral Libraries

This is a first announcement of the "International Workshop on Stellar
Spectral Libraries" which will be held on December 5 - 9, 2011 at the
University of Delhi.

Libraries of stellar spectra play an important role in different fields
of astrophysics. In particular they serve as reference for the
classification and automatic analysis of large stellar spectroscopic
surveys and are fundamental ingredients of the models of stellar
populations used to study the evolution of galaxies. These libraries
may either consist of observed or theoretical spectra, and they vary
by their spectral coverage/domain and resolution.

The goals of the workshop are to present the recent efforts in this
domain and to describe the usage of the libraries. Beside the
collections of spectra themselves, the description of the spectra
and of the stars composing the libraries (e.g. the atmospheric
parameters) will be a focus of the workshop.

Registration is now open. For more information, please see
