About the conference

The meetings at Bezovec will have their 53nd sequel in 2021 and are among the leading events of the Slovak Astronomical Society of the Slovak Academy of Sciences. Traditionally, they allow the exchange of experience between professional astronomers and variable stars observers, especially among students and youth actively working in astronomical clubs throughout Slovakia.

The focus of the conference is not just on variable stars, but covers a wide range of topics of stellar astrophysics, from exoplanets to cosmology. Contributions can be presented in the form of review lectures, regular talks, short announcements, and posters.

The Bezovec conferences are very well known not only for their valuable scientific program but also for their rich social activities, which include a welcome party, walking trips to Bezovec hill or the ruins of Tematín Castle, and a conference dinner.
