You are invited to participate in in a workshop to celebrate John
Lattanzio's 60th birthday.

One Hand Waving Free
A Workshop to Celebrate the first 60 years of John Lattanzio
Port Douglas, Queensland
29th October to 4th November 2017.


This meeting celebrates the life and achievements of Prof. John
C. Lattanzio.  John has made a succession of important contributions to
the theory of stellar evolution over a sustained career that has seen
him move to Canada, the USA and the United Kingdom before returning to
his Australian roots.  He remains instantly recognisable on the
international stage where he is a speaker of choice on many aspects of
stellar evolution and nucleosynthesis.  Lattanzio's contributions to
research training at all levels are numerous.  His undergraduate
lectures are delivered with an enthusiasm that has ignited many a
career in astrophysics and he has trained a number of excellent
graduate students and postdoctoral researchers who have gone on to
hold positions worldwide.  John is the active president of the
International Astronomical Union's Division G3 on stellar evolution.

The workshop will cover the topics on which John has had such an impact
through his varied and distinguished career.  Scientific sessions will
focus on topics on which John has worked and will include stellar
evolution of low- and intermediate- mass stars, SAGB stars,
nucleosynthesis, grains, galactic archaeology and hydrodynamics of star
formation and evolution as well as outreach sessions for the public
and for undergraduates.

We look forward to hearing from you soon and indeed seeing you in Port

Spaces are limited but there is plenty of room for now.  Registration
is open with a deadline of 28th July.

Many thanks and best wishes,
Christopher Tout, John Lattanzio, Richard Stancliffe, Amanda Karakas
and Ghina Halabi
