Asteroids, Comets, Meteors (ACM) meeting

Posted on Jan 9, 2012 in News

The Asteroids, Comets, Meteors (ACM) meeting is the premier international gathering of scientists who study small bodies. The ACM series began in 1983 in Uppsala, Sweden, as a means of bringing together different groups within the asteroid, comet, and meteor communities who do not often have the opportunity to interact. From this first ACM meeting, a regular conference began. The conference now takes place every three years*, and it is the pre-eminent meeting for small-bodies research, with attendance usually in excess of 400. The 2012 ACM meeting will be the 11th in the series and will be the first time in Asian Region. Asteroids, Comets, Meteors (ACM) 2012 will be held 16 – 20 May, 2012, in Niigata, Japan, at TOKI Messe (Niigata Convention Center). The meeting will start on Wednesday (16th) and end on Sunday (20th). For more information, visit: http://chiron.mtk.nao.ac.jp/ACM2012/
