We are happy to announce the second Mid-Atlantic Radio-Loud AGN Meeting (MARLAM), to be held Friday, October 10th, 2014 at Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD. This follows our successful inaugural meeting last year which was held at STScI in Baltimore (previous website with presentations is here).
MARLAM is intended to serve as an annual meetings of researchers and students working on RL AGN in the Mid-Atlantic area (e.g., within driving distance of Baltimore/Washington, DC), with hosting location rotating through local institutions. This one-day meeting will feature talks on the latest research and discoveries in RL AGN and related topics, in order to foster a greater contact in the local community and give opportunity to local scientists to give a more informal and informative talk on their research than might be possible at larger meetings.
To request a talk at the upcoming meeting, please email Eileen Meyer at email@example.com with a title and brief abstract by September 1st, 2014. Note: because the security at GSFC requires considerable lead time to clear visitors and generate temporary badges, please indicate your intention of attending the meeting to us as early as possible. Length of the talks will be determined after submissions have closed (last year, we were able to accomodate everyone with a 25 minute talk). We particularly encourage submissions by current graduate students and post-docs. There will be no posters at the meeting; however, it will also be possible to register to attend without giving a talk. If that is the case, you must still register by sending your name, title, and institution to firstname.lastname@example.org so that all participants receive email updates about the meeting and we reserve a large enough space.
Once you have successfully registered for the meeting, please follow the links above for directions to GSFC and the workshop location, as well as parking information. The meeting and parking are free; however, coffee and lunch arrangements will either be at the discretion of the participants or available for a separate charge (details will be posted/emailed after the submission deadline).
