The VLBA Owens Valley


21-23 July 2009, Socorro, New Mexico, USA

Scientific Rationale

The astrometric productivity of the VLBA has been making a huge impact in scientific areas such as Galactic structure, pulsar/supernova physics, star formation and reference frame ties. With a forecasted significant increase in sensitivity and improved calibration algorithms, the precision of current results is likely to be dwarfed in the near future. The goal of this meeting is to bring together world experts in astrometry to explore new or improved applications of high-precision astrometry. We hope to form new collaborations across the EM spectrum that will result in key projects for the VLBA.


The workshop will be held in the Domenici Science Operations Center of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, on the campus of the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, in Socorro, New Mexico. A maximum of 70 attendees will be imposed.
