New Mexico Symposium: First Announcement

Amy Mioduszewski

The NRAO and the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (NMT) will jointly host the 25th annual New Mexico Symposium on 15 January 2010 at the NRAO Science Operations Center in Socorro, NM. We expect to fill a full day with oral and poster presentations, beginning at 09:00 and continuing through 17:30.

The 44th Karl G. Jansky Lecture will be presented by Dr. Anthony Readhead at the Symposium. In the evening, Dr. Readhead will also give a public lecture on NMT campus. The NRAO will host a dinner for registered Symposium participants prior to the public lecture.

Astronomers from New Mexico and surrounding states are invited to attend the Symposium and, if they wish, to present a paper. We particularly encourage students and early career astronomers to use the Symposium as a forum to present ongoing astronomical research. We can accommodate ~ 15 oral presentations and a large number of posters.

There is no registration fee, but anyone planning to attend is asked to register by January 4 to facilitate planning.

The meeting web page contains a link to the registration form, and also includes details about oral and poster presentations, the Jansky Lecture, and Socorro-area information, such as maps and restaurants.

Please distribute this announcement at your institution, to reach as wide an audience as possible. If you are interested in attending and did not receive this message by direct e-mail, we would be glad to add your email address to our Symposium information list. E-mail addresses and requests for further information should be sent to
