The Thirty-third Annual New Mexico Symposium will occur on 2017 November 3. The symposium will be hosted by NRAO and NM Tech, at the Science Operations Center in Socorro. We expect to fill a full-day schedule with oral and poster presentations, from about 9:00a through 5:30p.
The 52nd annual
Karl G. Jansky Lecture will be given by
Dr Bernie Fanaroff after the symposium dinner in Workman 101. Dr Fanaroff's public lecture is
titled Observing the Universe from Africa: Linking Radio Astronomy and Development.
There will be an informal reception following the 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 young astronomers to use the symposium as a forum to present ongoing astronomical research. We can accommodate approximately 19 oral presentations and a large number of posters.
The will be no registration fee, but anyone planning to attend is asked to register, to facilitate our planning. The registration deadline is October 23rd.
