Dear CN friends, It is with great pleasure we announce the addition of an Astro-Imaging conference to ASAE! Alan Traino has asked me to co-coordinate and host the event to be held November 14th Thursday and Friday the 15th before ASAE at the Tucson City Center Inn Suites.

Presenters include myself, Adam Block, Dr. Craig Stark, Dr. Don 'Astrodon' Goldman, Wolfgang Promper, and many, many more!

Registration opens soon, so please standby. We hope you can join us!

Thank you for your patience everyone! We're making good headway on the event and the website. We should have attendee registration up any day now. Have a LOOK at where we stand. Hope to see you there!!

OK... so i went to the web site, and read the information. I must admit, i am somewhat confused and concerned.

At first blush, it appears that you are showing 12 Presenters, and an additional 8 (I assume) short product talks.

This conference is only 2 days, and i assume probably 8 hurs each day. This would put each presenter at about 1 hour. Many of the presenters have subjects that could in and of themselves, easily cover an entire day.

Hopefully, your intent is not to "overlap" the speakers. And Hopefully, a schedule of presenter times will become available soon.

Looking forward to the event !!

I see that the cost for this "event" is $200, which covers both days. And I note that lunch is included for both days. The interesting "bonus" is that you are also including tickets to the following Sat/Sun event.

Have I got that correct ??

Hi David et al, And if you are a guest of the host hotel, breakfast is on them as well. We've not thought much about scheduling as of yet. We'll have to do multi-tracks as at NEAIC and AIC. I realize this can be frustrating if two talks you're interested in overlap, but it's a byproduct of the standard format.
