Subject: (cba:chat) First call for papers SAS/CBA joint meeting

It's that time again: time to think about attending the annual SAS
symposium at
Big Bear, CA. Just as important, to start thinking about the paper - poster or
oral - that you might want to present.

The meeting this year will be May 24-25, 2006 (Wed/Thu), which is the week
Memorial Day (US) and the RTMC Astronomy Expo - one of THE star parties!
Adding to this year's event is a joint meeting with the Center for Backyard
Astrophysics (does this mean the symposium will be very cataclysmic? <g>).
hoping for CBA members from around the world. One of those definitely
planning to
come is Tonny Vanmunster for Belgium.

Just like last year, there will a day of workshops on the day before the
symposium. Unlike last year, there will be concurrent classes covering
software packages or topics. Tonny will be giving workshops or Peranso, David
Bradstreet will be giving classes on Binary Maker 3, and Brian Warner will
be covering some
advanced topics in MPO Canopus such as using PhotoRed for photometric
Jerry Foote will be running a series of shorter sessions on the basics of
started in research photometry, including tips on scopes, cameras, and
techniques. There's truly something for everybody.

Tonny ( www.cbabelgium.com ) and

Last year's meeting was the largest in years. We hope to do better this
year by
making the experience even more diverse and worthwhile.
See you in Big Bear!
