2-5 November 2009, Washington, DC, USA
Please visit the updated conference web pages at http://fermi.gsfc.nasa.gov/science/symposium/2009/ for information about the meeting, including an updated block program. In particular, please see the First Bulletin for backgroundinformation and the links for registration, hotels, abstract submission, and the 2 November evening program at the Kennedy Center.
The Symposium registration fee is $395 until 1 October, and thereafter, until the Symposium, the registration fee will be $450. Walk-in registration at the Symposium will be $500. PLEASE REGISTER soon.
Abstracts for proposed scientific contributions to the Symposium are welcome. The default mode of contributions will be posters, which will be displayed in two, two-day sessions. A subset of the abstracts will be selected by the organizers for inclusion in either the parallel oral sessions or the contributed talk portions of the plenary sessions. In addition to Fermi science, poster and parallel oral contributions on relevant analysis techniques and the status of related facilities (current and future) are welcome. The link for abstract submission is available on the conference web site. The abstract submission deadline is 1 October. For poster contributions, we are trying something new: all posters should have a two-line abstract summary displayed at the top. The condensed summary, along with an optional more detailed abstract, will be included on the program website.
A more detailed program, including the list of invited talks, will be posted on the web site soon. Please check back.
The meeting poster is linked to the web page.
