the sea level office in the afternoon and last for about 30 minutes plus
time for questions afterwards. Astronomers from ING and other institutions
on site are invited to assist. Please contact Danny Lennon(firstname.lastname@example.org) and visit this URL: http://www.ing.iac.es/Astronomy/science/seminars.html,
