Green Bank Workshop --- 21 cm HI Survey Of The Milky Way
May 21-23, 2001
The Green Bank Workshop on the topic
of 21cm HI Surveys of the Milky Way that will be held from May 21-23, 2001
at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank WV, USA,
to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the interstellar
21cm HI line. The Workshop will be the first science gathering of the
International Galactic Plane Survey project, which will combine high
resolution HI surveys of the Galaxy underway at the DRAO, the ATNF
and the VLA. The Workshop will bring together researchers who are
involved in these and other HI surveys, and related surveys of the Milky
Way, to share techniques, results, and prospects for the future.
The Observatory at Green Bank is a particularly appropriate site for
this Workshop, as it is home to the original Ewen-Purcell horn and the
new 100 meter Green Bank Telescope, which will be in operation at the
time of the Workshop.
Green Bank Workshops have a reputation for excellence. The isolation
of Green Bank and its great natural beauty tend to create an atmosphere
conducive to in-depth scientific discussions.
Everyone who attends should expect to make a presentation
in one form or another. We encourage participation by students.
There are no plans to publish a proceedings from the Workshop.
