   1996 Meeting of the AAS High Energy Astrophysics Division

      *Incorporating XTE, ASCA, CGRO and ROSAT Workshops*  

                       April 30 - May 3, 
              Mission Bay,  San Diego,  California

               ABSTRACTS DUE FRIDAY JAN 26, 1996

The imminent launch of the X-ray Timing Explorer (XTE, August
1995) heralds the first US-led X-ray astronomy mission since
HEAO-2 in 1979.  With its launch, and that of SAX (Jan `96), High
Energy Astrophysics will have five missions (plus 2 EUV missions)
simultaneously active. This unprecedented diversity and quality
of data reinforces the clear need to communicate across missions.  
The AAS High Energy Astrophysics Division (HEAD) is holding a 
second Divisional meeting in Spring 1996 to provide a forum for 
this interchange. The meeting will cover observations and theory 
for all energies above ~100 eV and for all scientific areas of 
high energy astrophysics, with links to the rest of the spectrum. 
The sessions will be science-based, rather than mission-based.  
Oral sessions will include plenary review talks plus contributed 
talks. Poster sessions will be held both in parallel and alone to 
allow ample discussion time.  Evening discussion sessions may be 
organized on topics of current interest.

Since each mission has its idiosyncrasies, the meeting will
incorporate 1/2 day workshops on data analysis for XTE, ASCA,    
CGRO and ROSAT following the model of the 1994 (Napa) HEAD

Conference Location

	San Diego County stretches for 70 miles along the blue waters of
the Pacific Ocean and is home to a culturally diverse population.  
A superb climate, beautiful beaches, and virtually unlimited recreational 
opportunities have made San Diego one of the nation's most exciting 
destinations.  The natural wonders of San Diego are enhanced by the
world-renowned research facilities of the University of California, 
San Diego, Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the Salk Institute, 
and such recreational facilities as Sea World and the world-famous 
San Diego Zoo as well as the museums of Balboa Park.  Within a short 
drive are the picturesque oceanside village of La Jolla, the 1,800-acre 
Wild Animal Park, and the Palomar Observatory.


	The Catamaran Resort Hotel has been chosen as the conference hotel
for the meeting. The resort is a casually elegant tropical paradise located
on the white sands of Mission Bay and is just one hundred yards from the 
Pacific Ocean.  The hotel is within walking distance of many restaurants 
and shops in the surrounding area of Pacific Beach and Mission Beach.  
Mission Bay, one of largest aquatic parks of its kind, is devoted to 
numerous water sports including windsurfing, kayaking, canoeing, and 
boating, all available for rent from the hotel.  The hotel is also equipped 
with an exercise room which is located near the pool and spa.
