Hosted by the Chandra X-ray Center
at the Sheraton Commander Hotel
16 Garden St, Cambridge, MA


The maximum poster dimensions which can be accommodated by this workshop are 4'X4' (1.2m X 1.2m).

Talks - Format

Speakers are requested to use a common presentation file format, such as pdf, postscript, or Powerpoint. Please submit your files by July 10 (Sunday) using the SAO FTP site. This will assure efficient use of a tight schedule. We will have one windows machine and one OS X machine. Please title your talk by last name first initial. The directory is write only so if you need to resubmit index your submission (i.e. smithj_v2.pdf) for the second submission from John Smith.

After the meeting we hope to be able to post the talks on the meeting web site. To prevent abuse we will host them as PDF files. Contributors will be solicited for modifications so that will be comfortable with what is posted publicly. The abstracts will be made available via ADS.
