The twenty-sixth annual New Mexico Symposium will occur on
2010 November 5
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 09:00 through 17:30.
The forty-fifth annual Karl G. Jansky Lecture will be given by Prof. Reinhard
Genzel, during the symposium. He will speak on "The formation and evolution of
massive proto-disk galaxies". In the evening Prof. Genzel will also give a
public lecture at New Mexico Tech. NRAO will host a dinner for registered
participants between the end of the Symposium and the public 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 15 oral
presentations and a large number of posters.
There will be no registration fee, but anyone planning to attend is asked to
register, to facilitate our planning.
The registration deadline is October 27.
