Bienvenue, Welkom!

The 42nd International Meteor Conference (IMC 2023) will be held at the Euro Space Center in Redu, Belgium from August 31st till September 3rd 2023. The Euro Space Center is a thematic center whose goal is to raise awareness about space science via a number of activities : Space Hub, Mars Village, Space Flight Unit, Space Rotor, Planetarium, Moonwalk, Free fall slide and more.

The IMC 2023 is co-organised with the Royal Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy (BIRA-IASB). BIRA-IASB is a Belgian Federal Scientific Institute. Since its founding in 1964, it has been conducting research and providing public services in space aeronomy, i.e. the physics and chemistry of Earth's atmosphere and other planets, and outer space.

The BIRA-IASB Space Physics division has been active in meteor research for more than 12 years, mostly by developing the BRAMS (Belgian Radio Meteor Stations) network for radio forward scatter observations of meteors with a dedicated transmitter and > 40 receiving stations in Belgium and neighboring countries. The network is constantly growing and improving. At the same time, the team has been participating to optical camera networks (CAMS-BeNeLux, FRIPON, All-Sky7, GMN, EFN) to study meteors and fireballs.
