Dr Miroslav Kocifaj, Faculty of Mathematics Physics and Informatics, Comenius University in Bratislava, Slovakia

Miroslav Kocifaj is a senior researcher working in the Physics group of Slovak Academy of Sciences and has been in Vienna with a Lise Meitner Grant before joining University of Vienna as a visiting professor giving the lectures on Light Scattering by Small Particles. His research interest includes interaction of electromagnetic radiation with non-spherical aerosol particles, radiative transfer in disperse media, sky glow: theory, modelling and measurements, and also inverse problems of atmospheric optics. He has received 4 patents, Solar Energy Journal Best Paper Award, and US Army Research Lab. Grant awards. Currently he is leading a group of scientists who developed a generalized skyglow model.

Dr Martin Aubé, Département de Physique, Cégep de Sherbrooke, Canada 

Martin Aubé is a a world leading researcher in the field of remote sensing and modeling of light pollution. He got his Ph.D. degree in remote sensing from Université de Sherbrooke and a M.Sc. degree in astrophysics from Université Laval. He is a physics professor at Cégep de Sherbrooke, adjunct professor of applied geomatics at Université de Sherbrooke, and adjunct professor of physics at Bishop's University. Prof. Aubé received the  2014 "excellence in research award" from the Québec's research agency; and the 2013 "Raymond Gervais award", which highlights excellence in science teaching.
