American Astronomical Society Meeting in Chicago

The NRAO is hosting a topical session  on June 2, 1999, at this
meeting of the AAS

The purpose of this session is to make the capabilities of the
Very Long Basline Array ( VLBA ) more widely known and to encourage
investigators from diverse specialties to use the VLBA as a means of advancing
knowledge in their fields.  A series of invited speakers,  including graduate students
and postdoctoral fellows, will give talks on their science using the VLBA, emphasizing
their experience in scheduling, observing, and data reduction.
