Dark skies and remote sites have attracted world-class astronomical facilities to the Southwest and supported a wide range of research since the mid-1900s. Regional achievements span areas in both science and technology including optical and radio interferometry, as well as new understanding of solar physics, planetary science, star and galaxy formation and evolution, and the creation and evolution of our universe. To support the network of scientific research in the Southwest and encourage interdisciplinary discussions, the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and New Mexico Tech (NMT) are sponsoring the 25th Annual New Mexico Symposium on Friday, 2010 January 15, at the NRAO Science Operations Center (SOC) in Socorro, NM.
REGISTRATION: Registration is closed. If you still want to attend please e-mail Amy Mioduszewski.
REGISTRANTS: A list of meeting registrants can be found here.
LOCATION: The Symposium will be held in the Science Operations Center (SOC) of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. The SOC (formerly the AOC) is located on the campus of the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology in Socorro, New Mexico. Directions and maps of the local area are available, as is a list of local restaurants . You may also be interested in a local map.
ORAL PROGRAM: Oral presentations will begin at 09:00 in the SOC Auditorium, located off the lobby, immediately adjacent to the main entrance. We are scheduling in 15-minute slots, including 12 minutes for the talk and 3 minutes for discussion.
The oral program and presentations are now available. Information for speakers can be found here.
POSTER PROGRAM: Posters will be displayed in the SOC Common Room, located on the upper floor at the head of the main staircase. Breaks in the oral program will provide plenty of time for viewing the posters; refreshments will be served in the Common Room during the breaks to induce participants to walk upstairs and look at the posters.
The poster program is now available. Information for poster presenters can be found here.
ABSTRACTS: Abstracts were not required and not everyone presenting a paper submitted one. The abstracts can be found here.
DINNER: NRAO will be hosting a post-meeting dinner, starting with cocktails at 5:30pm. The dinner will be held at the Macey Center adjacent to the SOC on the New Mexico Tech campus. It will be free to officially registered meeting participants.
PUBLIC JANSKY LECTURE: The 44th annual Karl G. Jansky Lecture will be given by Anthony Readhead, in the evening following the Symposium. Dr. Readhead's lecture, titled "The Central Engines that Power Active Galaxies", will be given at 8:00pm in Workman 101 on the campus of New Mexico Tech. This lecture is open to the public and there will be a reception following the lecture.
