VEGA 2022
International Spectroscopy Symposium for Professional and Amateur Astronomers May 26 - May 28, 2022

A very successful conference with interesting lectures and discussions.
This conference takes place in a unique facility in Europe, the Vega Observatory in Haunsberg near Salzburg / Austria.
2022 was the second time this symposium took place, and it was a great success. Lectures by a large number of professional and amateur astronomers gave a deep insight into current research in astrophysics and spectroscopy, as well as ongoing and future ProAm collaborations.
The conference language was in English. There were participants from 10 different countries.
