It's been a productive spring and early summer for many GC
researchers as evidenced by the 35 new GC abstracts! Thanks
to all authors for getting your abstracts in for periodic
e-newsflashes. We will get back to having a regular science
feature article in the Fall 2006 issue of GCNEWS.
In the current issue we have a meeting summary from the GC06
Workshop held in late April in Bad Honnef, Germany, written by
Rainer Schödel. This meeting was well-attended and provided
lively discussions on many exciting GC topics! The spectacular
location (and in-haus bier stube) helped to facilitate such
discussions. A number of presentations on the theory of massive
star formation and on nearby low-luminosity active galactic nuclei
added breadth to the program. We continue to welcome meeting or
workshop reports and encourage organizers (or participants!) of meetings
or workshops to provide brief summaries so that those not able to attend might
still be able to keep abreast of developments related to GC science.
Finally, we include the full program for the Special Science Session
at the IAU Division VII (Galactic) Meeting on Monday, August 21st.
This session will hopefully provide the basis for forming a working group on
the Galactic Center and nearby normal nuclei. We hope if you are
planning to attend the IAU you will go to this session and encourage your
colleagues (especially from other sub-fields) to join you to find
out about the latest GC findings.
