For the first time, The University of Dundee will host the Robert Cormack Bequest Meeting on Scottish Astronomy. This annual one-day conference aims to bring together Astronomers, Space Scientists and those with an interest in astronomy from across Scotland to present work and to view a broad selection of current happenings in Scottish astronomy. The meeting focuses primarily on research but also includes teaching and outreach work.

The Cormack Meeting is an annual event resulting from a bequest left by Mr Robert Cormack in 1942 in the Trusteeship of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE). Administered by the RSE Cormack Committee and convened by the Astronomer Royal for Scotland, the funds are used for the furtherance of astronomical research, knowledge and teaching throughout Scotland.

The Cormack Meeting 2009 will be held in the Dalhousie Building, University of Dundee, on Monday 27th April. More information can be found at Robert Cormack Meeting 2009.
