The International Conference TUNGUSKA96
(Bologna, 14-17 July 1996)

In 1996, the first really International Conference on Tunguska, was organized in Bologna by prof. G. Longo. The Tunguska event was discussed by a practically equal number of  Russian and Western scientists. 27 abstracts were presented from countries of the former USSR, 15 from Europe, 11 from United States, 1 from Japan, and 1 from Brazil. Abstracts are available on line (see below), while a selection of papers has been published in a special issue of the international journal Planetary and Space Science, n. 2/3, 1998.
