Starlight, Beyond Light Pollution 2016
**** The Workshop Venue ****
We have secured the meeting room of Las Olas apart-hotel for the main workshop
and the optional astro-photo workshop. This venue has a capacity of 50 places,
being conveniently located in your hotel.
In case the registration for the workshop will be larger than 50 participants,
then we will move this event to the larger meeting room (capacity 120 places) of the nearby
4 star Hotel Taburiente (5 min walk). This venue was used in 21-23 September 2013 for the
International Meteor Conference (IMC2012) which gathered 120 paricipants from 15 countries.
The meeting room in Las Olas is airconditioned and endowed with large tables, having
projection facilities, namely a large TV which allows presentations from computers and
video-projector screen. The coffee breaks will be served on site.
This meeting room of Las Olas was used in 18 May 2015 for a meeting about light pollution,
which gathered 30 participants and recommended the 2016 conference to take place in La Palma,
We will webcast our workshop and we will invite a few overseas speakers to give their webcast
live presentations. In May 2015 three such invited speakers gave their talks via the internet
from the United States, Canada and the Netherlands, in very good transmission conditions.
