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
Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and
New Mexico Tech
(NMT) are sponsoring the 35th Annual
New Mexico Symposium on Friday, 21 February 2020,
at the NRAO Science Operations Center (SOC) in
Registration is now open!

Registration may close early if capacity of 100
participants is significantly exceeded.
The symposium will be held in the auditorium of the
Domenici Science Operations Center
(DSOC) at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. The DSOC is located
on the campus of the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (NMT) in Socorro,
NRAO will be hosting a post-meeting dinner, starting with cocktails at 5:30pm.

which this year will be given by Dr. Anneila I. Sargent.
The public lecture, Expanding Horizons with
Millimeter/ Submillimeter Astronomy, will take
place in Workman 101, NMT, after the Symposium and the
Symposium Dinner. The public Jansky Lecture is free
to attend and there is no registration to this event.
