The 27th Annual New Mexico Symposium
  14 October 2011 - National Radio Astronomy Observatory

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 are sponsoring the 27th Annual New Mexico Symposium on Friday, 14 October 2011, at the NRAO Science Operations Center (SOC) in Socorro, NM.

Location: The symposium will be held in the auditorium of the Science Operations Center (SOC) at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. The SOC is located on the campus of the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology in Socorro, New Mexico.

Dinner: NRAO will be hosting a post-meeting dinner, starting with cocktails at 5:30pm. The dinner will be held at the Fidel Center on the New Mexico Tech campus. It will be free to officially registered symposium participants.

Jansky Lecture: The 46th annual Karl G. Jansky Lecture will be given by Dr. Sander Weinreb after the sympoium dinner. Dr. Weinreb's lecture is titled "Radio Astronomy from Jansky to the Future - An Engineer's Point of View". There will be an informal reception following the lecture. Click here for a poster.
