Registration Still Open for AAS Topical Conferences

It's not too late to register for these hot summer topical conferences to be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and Spa in Monterey, California, a comfortable mountain setting with ample opportunity for recreation outside of the set meeting times:

This meeting will bring together people who are working on probes of dark matter on galactic scales — on dynamical studies (utilizing new simulations as well as new observational data), gravitational lensing, kinematical studies of dwarf galaxies in the Local Group and beyond, and indirect probes of dark matter. See the science schedule online.

Giants of Eclipse
28 July - 2 August 2013
This meeting will provide a forum to discuss the physics of cool giant stars, examine new data, and compare the latest theories. Studies of giants in eclipsing binaries such as Epsilon Aurigae have advanced cool-star physics, and the role of these systems as astrophysical calibrators is central to the meeting. The full schedule and abstracts are available online.
