Press Release: Astronomy Workshop Features Global Expers in Interferometry, New Mexico Tech

 

 

 

As evidenced by the growth in the number of papers over the past two decades, optical/infrared interferometry can no longer be relegated to a so-called "niche" area of astronomy. This workshop highlighted anticipated science across the entire spectrum of stellar astrophysics where long-baseline interferometry has recently made some spectacular discoveries, and is now beginning to delve into near-field cosmology through the characterization of the environs of AGN.

 

This four-day workshop (March 28-31, 2011) took place in scenic Socorro, NM, home to the array operations center for the EVLA, and near the site of the soon-to-be-operational Magdalena Ridge Observatory Interferometer. Along with an exciting slate of invited speakers, it featured contributed talks, a poster session, and plenty of time for open discussion among the participants. The workshop culminated in a tour of MROI and the production of proceedings via the ASP.

 

Thank you to all who participated in the workshop and made it a wonderful and successful week!

 

NOTE: Registration includes a conference proceedings which will be published later in the year and all participants will have an opportunity to submit a paper.
