International EME Conference 2012

The 15th International Earth-Moon-Earth (EME) Conference will be held at Churchill College, Cambridge, between 15 and 19 August. It is hosted by the UK Microwave Group.

This is the first time that this conference will be held in the United Kingdom (UK), and it provides an opportunity to learn about this most technically challenging aspect of our great science-based hobby.

In addition to EME-specific lectures there will be presentations on radio astronomy and deep space communications, as both these subjects have much in common with EME.

Two Nobel Physics Laureates from the world of radio astronomy will be present at the conference. Joe Taylor, K1JT, is a keen EME enthusiast and will be presenting a paper on MAP65, while fellow-Laureate Professor Antony Hewish FRS is the speaker at the conference gala dinner on Saturday 18th.

With over 150 delegates and 60 partners from 5 continents already registered, this promises to be a great event. All those wishing to attend must pre-register for this conference before 1st August. Day passes and a range of accommodation packages from one to four nights are available.
