The European Symposium on Occultation Projects is organised annually by the International Occultation Timing Association/European Section (IOTA/ES). This year the 39th conference was planned to take place in Freiburg im Breisgau.
But the ESOP 39 could only take place online as a video conference on the internet due to the impact of Covid-19.
ESOP 39 - that were two days with 22 interesting presentations and many lively discussions. On average, over 100 participants were online. Besides participants from the EU, participants from Japan, Australia, Thailand, Turkey, Switzerland, UK, USA, Argentina and Brazil were registered.
Even though we were not able to meet in person - ESOP 39 can be considered a success! Thanks to all who were part of it!
Many Presentations and all live recordings including discussion can be viewed on the <Programme> page.
There is also an article about the ESOP in the Journal for Occultation Astronomy (JOA), issue 2020-4.
