The EuroVS 2013 -meeting was organized in Helsinki, Finland 26.-28.4.2013. The number of participants was much lower than expected, but the atmosphere of the meeting was warm and excited! In total 9 participants were on site and 2 persons attended via internet.

In the meeting, we heard many interesting lectures, for example about the history of Variable star observing in Finland and about the new online database of the BAA.VSS. Besides the on-site -presentations, we heard also two lectures via internet from USA. The venue -site was the old Helsinki observatory, which is now home to Ursa Astronomical Association and the Helsinki Observatory Museum.

On saturday, we visited The Suomenlinna -fortress island, just 15 minutes from the City via ferry. On the island, we also had a dinner in the Suomenlinna Brewery Restaurant.
