The Eleventh Synthesis Imaging Workshop took place from June 10 through June 17 of 2008 in Socorro, NM. The school comprised a week of lectures on aperture synthesis theory and techniques at a level appropriate for graduate students in astrophysics. Basic lectures on synthesis imaging, and advanced lectures on more specialized techniques, were included. Practical tutorials demonstrating data collection, calibration and imaging of both VLA and VLBA data wwere given. There was a nominal registration fee, which will cover the cost of the meeting and a copy of ASP Vol. 180, "Synthesis Imaging in Radio Astronomy II", from the 1998 summer school.
