ASpekt 2018

Annual Conference in Frankfurt, June 15 - 17

We invite all spectroscopically interested astronomers, especially beginners and young colleagues. See also the invitation in our forum. We offer

  • a series of lectures on all spectroscopic topics,
  • a poster and instrument session,
  • informal discussions on the subject and
  • fun and conviviality.

Early birds and all other interested colleagues meet for exciting discussions already on Friday evening. A VdS membership is not necessary.

Information about the registration and the program will be posted here. A permanent exchange for preparation and further activities can be found in the Section Forum.

Please register at

Closing date: 1. Mai 2018

We have set up a fund for young participants, with which we can offer a confidential grant on request.




We meet at the Physikalischer Verein in Frankfurt/Main, Robert-Mayer-Straße 2-4 It is located directly next to the Senckenberg Museum and was founded in 1824 on the initiative of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. The view of Frankfurt's skyline from the observatory roof is unique.

As a conference hotel we have booked a room contingent at the "Mercure Hotel & Residenz Frankfurt" (Voltastraße 32,60486 Frankfurt am Main). Walking distance between the two sites is 10 minutes. Note that every participant registers the hotel himself/herself with the keyword "Aspekt 2018" and pays afterwards (Tel.: 069 79269). When registering, a credit card number is required.

There is nothing more to be said about the financial metropolis of Frankfurt. There you will find EVERYTHING, from several universities to world famous museums and every kind of culture. The cultural and touristic possibilities have no limits and correspond to a city with a long history and tradition. . Dort findet man ALLES, von mehreren Universitäten über weltbekannte Museen bis zu jeder Art von Kultur. Die kulturellen und touristischen Möglichkeiten haben kaum Lücken und entsprechen einer Stadt mit langer Geschichte und Tradition.

So it is also worthwhile for the astronomically uninterested "appendix" to come to Frankfurt.

Special workshop: "Spectroscopic Coding of Stock Packages - An Attack on the Stock Market".
