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 35th Annual New Mexico Symposium on Friday, 21 February 2020,
at the NRAO Science Operations Center (SOC) in Socorro, NM.
Registration will open in mid December 2019.
if you have any questions.
The symposium will be held in the auditorium of the

(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.
