Dear meteor enthusiasts,

In this e-mail you can find more information on the International Meteor 
Conference in Oostmalle, Belgium.
First, I have an IMPORTANT MESSAGE for all IMC participants: we heard of 
people who have registered but did not reach the organiser's list. So 
please CHECK whether your name is
in the list below. If not, let us know (imc2005 at imo.net). An updated 
version of this list is always available on the IMC's website: 

The IMC takes place in Oostmalle, Belgium from September 15-18 inclusive, 
and as usual it brings together amateur and professional meteor enthusiasts 
from around the world. The subscription fee is now 130 Euro, covering 
lodging, meals, excursion and conference proceedings. IMCs are always great 
fun for anyone with a real interest in meteors. There is a daily program of 
lectures and posters, dealing with all branches of meteor astronomy, plus a 
half-day excursion to the lovely city of Lier.
Moreover, you have ample time to talk to the many enthusiasts with similar 
interests. You do not need to be an IMO member to register for, or attend, 
the IMC.

If you want to participate in the IMC, but have not registered yet, please 
fill in the online subscription form on http://www.imo.net/imc2005 as soon 
as possible, and follow the payment
