The Evolution of Galaxies through the Neutral Hydrogen Window

The Evolution of Galaxies
through the Neutral Hydrogen Window

February 1-3, 2008
Arecibo Observatory, Puerto Rico

Conference Program

Last Modified Monday, 03-Mar-2008 16:26:23 AST

Speakers should note that in order to encourage discussion, the SOC asks that you leave a quarter of the ‘time-slot’ for discussion at the end of their talk, e.g. speakers with 20-minute slots should aim for 15-minute talks and 5 minutes of discussion and those with 10-minute slots should aim for 7-minute talks and 3 minutes of discussion. We also ask speakers to finish with a slide looking to the future: something like ‘ The next decade: what we can do and what we need to do it.’

The list of poster presentations is available here. Posters should be the standard size used at AAS meetings: they should fit within a 112 x 112 cm / 44 x 44 inch area.

Printable versions of this program are available in PDF and plain text.
