The 2012 Convention of the Antique Telescope Society will be held on 28th - 29th September in Hamburg, Germany, at the city's historic observatory, which celebrates its centenary this year.

Several sessions of papers are scheduled and we invite you to submit an abstract of a proposed paper.
We welcome papers on subjects including historic telescopes and accessories, early observatories and astronomers, astronomical instrument makers, the history of optics, and especially the history, construction, and preservation of telescopes.
Deadline for Submission of Abstracts: September 4, 2012. Early applications would be helpful. Your abstract should be brief, preferably no more than 200 words. Please indicate the time you need for your presentation. A digital projector will be provided; please communicate your software needs. Other projectors will be provided based on availability in Germany.
We hope for participation from interested persons of all nationalities, but the language of the oral presentation sessions will be English.
In the event that there are more papers proposed than time permits, a papers committee will be used to schedule the sessions. In general, our presentations are limited to 20 minutes. We can allow more time when needed, after communication with the papers coordinator.
We would like to encourage speakers to prepare their presentations for publication in the ATS Journal. Speakers may submit their presentations to the Papers Coordinator at the time of the meeting to be forwarded to the Journal Editor. It is understood that some papers cannot be submitted due to copyright or other considerations.
