on the commencing of the "Third assembly on Celestial Mechanics - CELMEC III", powerful sensations hit our minds. The convention (18-22 June 2001) used to be being held in Villa Mondragone, a stunning advanced of constructions and gardens positioned in the township of Monte Porzio Catone, at the hills surrounding Rome. A former papal place of dwelling, the development has been lately restored via the collage of Rome "Tor Vergata" to host educational actions and occasions. The convention room is named "Salone degli Svizzeri": right here, Gregory XIII, on February 24, 1582, gave its sanction to the reform of the Julian calendar and declared formally in use the calendar nonetheless followed these days. The significant excessive partitions and tall ceiling strongly resounded, giving to our voice a unusual Vatican sound, which took us unexpectedly. will be - we idea - echo of the very phrases of Gregory XIII proclaiming the modem calendar was once nonetheless haunting the room. round us, within the viewers, many nations have been represented, hence indicating that the assumption of placing jointly the 3 "souls" of modem Celestial Mechanics - perturbation theories, sunlight and stellar process experiences, spaceflight dynamic- were winning. CELMEC III is actually the most recent of a sequence of conferences (the first variants happened in 1993 and 1997 in L' Aquila, Italy) whose goal is to set up a typical floor between humans operating in Celestial Mechanics, but belonging to diversified associations similar to universities, astronomical observatories, learn institutes, area organisations and industries.
