The second Meteor Seminär involved mainly participants from Germany as well as several amateurs from Austria. Serious talks were proposed to standardize observing and reporting methods within FEMA (Federation European Meteor Astronomers). One of the participants and driving forces behind this idea, Andreas Rohr from Switzerland died in an accident in the high Alps after this meeting. At this meeting a professional scientist was invited as guest speaker. At the end of this conference a lot of attention was paid to evaluate the event in order to look for improvements for future meetings.
