For those in transit to the EPSC and/or willing to stay in Wroclaw during the weekend: the local host could organise a day (Saturday 14/09) at the castle of Książ in the Sudetes (https://www.ksiaz.walbrzych.pl/en/). There is a lot to visit there, some of us were there and were delighted; September seems also a good season to visit because of the forest colours.
There is far enough for one day, including visits inside and outside the castle. The Space Research Centre additionally has an unique and weird underground geodynamics observatory below the castle in a series of tunnels built in 1943-45 by the Germans. It is used for gravity, tides, seismology, crustal deformation, earth vibrations, low frequency atmosphere processes etc. We asked the geodynamics lab for a visit in the tunnels. We could plan a bus that would leave Wroclaw at 8:30 on Saturday, arriving at the Książ castle before 10:00, then 7 hours for the underground visit (1 hour), lunch (1 hour), and some of the local attractions (castle/gardens/forest – 5 hours) for which we may have a guided tour (if we are more than 15), before leaving to be back in Wroclaw around 18:00.
!!! Register before August 25 for the excursion
The link below describes the access to the meeting place and gives information on hotels. There are many other and cheaper options in downtown Wroclaw. The B&B Hotel Wrocław Centrum, 25 minutes from the meeting place, is frequently the most affordable and guests usually enjoy it. The apps BusNavi and Jakdojade give public transportation information live

Coronavirus update: JpGU has now been cancelled and will move to an online format. This means that the SWT17 originally planned for ISAS/JAXA, Tokyo, Japan (20-22 May 2020) is now cancelled.
Instead we will hold a virtual meeting on the afternoons of 16-17th June as follows:
- Day 1, 14-16:30: SO new results
- Day 2, 14-16:30: UVIS and LNO new results (+ remaining SO talks)
The next NOMAD SWT#14 meeting will be hosted by IAA (Instituto Astrofísica Andalucía) in Granada, at the premises of IAA, on 22-23 May 2019.
Instituto de Astrofisica de Andalucia (IAA/CSIC)
Glorieta de la Astronomía s/n, Apdo 3004,
18080 Granada, Spain
Wednesday : NOMAD SWT 9:00 – 18:00
Thursday : NOMAD SWT 9:00 – 18:00
Friday : social event
What about a day off walking in Sierra Nevada’s south side, a region called “Las Alpujarras”? White small villages hanging on the mountain slopes connected by bending medieval stone-paved paths.
We could organize it for Friday 25th, the day immediately after the meeting. The area is 1-2 h by car from Granada. Plus 2-3 h walking, plus 2 h for a slow lunch in any local plaza del pueblo … makes a full day out.
Not much organization is needed on my side, just to know the number of interested people. Normal/walking shoes, comfortable clothes, an old hat and sun glasses are all you need. All are welcome; depending on individual physical restrictions, we could make two groups, less/more walking/eating to suit everyone.
Special offer from Hotel Macia Monasterio de Los Basilios, near the city centre and at 10 mins walk from the IAA.
15 rooms blocked until April 10th.
Single Room : 60 €
Double Room : 70 €
After April 10th, regular fare and availability will be applied.
mentioning “Reunion Científica NOMAD en el Instituto de Astrofísica”
and passing them your dates, a debit or credit card number, etc.
