The Hellenic Astronomical Society (Hel.A.S.) & the Democritus Univercity of Thrace (DUTH) are organizing the 8th Hellenic Astronomical Conference in Thassos Island in 13-15 September 2007


    The main purpose of the 8th International Conference of the Hellenic Astronomical Society is to create an environment to disseminate the results of the current theoretical and observational studies in  Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Physics. Its  aims are also extended to the fostering of the cooperation of  astrophysicists from Greece or Greek Diaspora with their colleagues worldwide and to the creation of a source of inspiration for the younger generation.
    The 8th Conference of the Hellenic Astronomical Society is devoted to the Anniversary of 50 Years of Space Exploration.
    The invited plenary speakers are:
  1. Prof. Wolfgang Baumjohann, Space Res. Inst., Austrian Academy of Sciences, invited review on "The Earth's Magnetosphere: An Astrophysical Plasma Laboratory"
  2. Prof. Ofer Lahav, Head of Astrophysics Dept., UCL-London, invited review on "Surveys on Dark Energy: Challenges and Prospects"
