International Conference on Planetary Nebulae as astronomical tools
Start date: 29 Jun 2005
Address: Gdansk, Poland
This conference aims to explore the entire potential of planetary nebulae as tools for astronomy. This is the first time that such a conference is explicitly and exclusively devoted to this aspect. It is intended both for astronomers who exploit or plan to exploit planetary nebulae as tools in their field, and for planetary nebulae specialists who wish to orientate their research for the use of a wide astronomical population. These different communities do not know each other well, and one of the purposes of the conference is to make them exchange their knowledge and experience.
