JENAM is the Joint European and National Astronomy Meeting organized each year in one of the European countries jointly by the European Astronomical Society and the respective national astronomical society. JENAM 2011 will take place in St. Petersburg, Russia, during the week of July 4-8, 2011.
JENAM 2011 will host 9 Mini-Symposia, plenary sessions and many Special Sessions on various aspects of modern astronomy. The European Astronomical Society (EAS) general assembly and board meetings will also take place during JENAM2011.
We believe that JENAM2011 will be a truly exciting event, addressing a wide range of topics in Astronomy and Space Sciences and technologies, that are of interest to the European astronomical community.

St. Petersburg is one of the world's most beautiful cities. It was founded in 1703 by Emperor Peter the Great as his "window on the West". Although just 300 years old, St. Petersburg has a rich and exciting history, full of dramatic events and major historical figures. the city today offer to its visitors high art, lavish architecture, excellent nightlife, and extraordinary history and rich cultural traditions that have inspired and nurtured some of the modern world's greatest literature, music, and visual art. From late May to early July the nights are bright in St Petersburg, with the brightest period, the so called "White Nights" (Beliye Nochi), normally lasting from June 11th to July 2nd. Although the phenomenon is not unique to St Petersburg, it is probably fair to say that in no other northern city have "white nights" received such poetic and literary acclaim.
