HEADNEWS: THE ELECTRONIC NEWSLETTER OF THE HIGH ENERGY ASTROPHYSICS DIVISION OF THE AAS




Newsletter No. 98, June 2011

15. Meetings Calendar

Given that we did not hear from too many meeting organizers, that in the past we knew that many people missed this last part of the newsletter, and many of those meetings we did hear about either filled up or had deadlines pass by the time the newsletter came out, we are considering changing this part of the newsletter.

Since we (HEAD) send out periodic emails to the membership about conferences, our plan is to have this be the only way we advertise conferences. We might consider maintaining a separate part of our webpage with a list of high-energy meetings of interest, but given that other organizations maintain conference webpages, we wonder if that duplicate effort is helpful. Comments? Please contact Ann Hornschemeier at headsec@xraydeep.org, (HEAD Secretary-Treasurer).
