Title Foreword of the KB Broberg symposium issue
Author(s) Ståhle, Per
Date 2010
English abstract
To honour the memory of Knut Bertram Broberg, and to promote continuing work on the many ideas which he shared so generously with students and colleagues throughout his lifetime, a symposium was arranged at University College of Dublin in 2007. The idea was to create an informal atmosphere, and to keep the num- ber of participants fairly low. This has now become a bi-annual symposium with the highlight being one or two lectures by outstanding world-class scientists. The second Broberg Memorial Symposium was arranged by the Lund Institute of Technology in Sweden (LTH) in May 2009. The venue of the conference was a renais- sance castle, Trolleholm, that was put to our disposal by the courtesy of the Rector of LTH. Trolleholm was once the home of Sophia Brahe whose careful obser- vations of planetary orbits later was used by Johannes Kepler to develop his laws of planetary motion. Kepler was at the time working as an assistant to Sophia’s brother Tycho Brahe.
