The 32nd Annual New Mexico Symposium
  4 November 2016 - 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 32nd Annual New Mexico Symposium on Friday, 4 November 2016, at the NRAO Science Operations Center (SOC) in Socorro, NM.

  Registration closed. Please contact Amy Mioduszewski if you have any questions.
