Friends-of-Friends Meeting

April 9-11, 2012

Welcome to the second edition of the IATE Friends-of-Friends meeting.
The meeting is aimed at stretching the bounds between the astronomers that work at the IATE and their external collaborators, as well as sharing the state-of-the-art of works that are being developed by the IATE members.
As in its 1st edition, the meeting is held in the IATE headquarters in a relaxed and collaborative environment. The talks are split into two different modes: invited speakers' talks are meant to be a 45+15 minutes talk, while there will be several short talks of 15+5 minutes long.
