Each year the International Meteor Organization organizes a four-day conference where about 100 meteor enthusiasts from around the world attend lectures and share their experience. Since the founding of the International Meteor Organization, the International Meteor Conferences (IMCs) have guaranteed the vital personal contacts between its members.
The IMC 2022 will take place from Thursday September 29 to Sunday October 2, 2022 in Hungary, in the small village of Poroszló near Lake Tisza (Tisza-tó) in the Hortobágyi National Park. Early bird registration ends on June 30. You can find more information on the IMC 2022 website.

The IMO Council welcomes proposals for organizing future editions of the conference. Instructions on creating a proposal can be found in the article Call for Future IMCs (PDF – scroll down to bottom).
