Venue: ESO Headquarters, Garching bei München, Germany
This ESO Workshop will serve to bring together European astronomers who have obtained observational data before, during and after the collision of comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 with Jupiter. Only by combining these data will it be possible to arrive at a good understanding of the complex phenomena and the meeting will thus contribute to the ongoing interpretative efforts. It will further the preparation of joint papers to be delivered at the major IAU Colloquium 158 on the same subject three months later (May 9 - 12, 1995; Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A.) and also provide a useful forum for those European observers who are unable to come to Baltimore. The participation of Central and East European astronomers in the ESO Workshop will be supported by the ESO C&EE Programme. Some key people from outside Europe will provide additional input from other side.
The meeting will be held in the ESO Auditorium and in view of its limited capacity (approx. 125), participation in this Workshop may have to be restricted. Application and accommodation forms may be obtained from the Workshop Secretariat (address below); the deadline for receipt of these at ESO is December 15, 1994.
The deadline for submission of abstracts to contributed talks and posters is January 15, 1995.
Please note that there will be a conference fee of 80 DEM; this includes a copy of the Proceedings, to be available on May 1, 1995.
