The January AAS, meeting has many sessions in the program that will be
of interest to those who use RXTE data. The AAS meeting finishes midday
on Jan. 12.  We invite all XTE users, enthusiasts, and interested
others to come to Greenbelt after attending the meeting.  The XTE
team will reserve a block of rooms at the Holiday Inn, Greenbelt,
for the nights of Jan. 12-13.  We will also be helping to arrange
transportation from DC to Greenbelt and between the Holiday Inn and
Goddard on Friday.

The program on Friday at Goddard will include invited talks on Stellar
Black Holes, AGN, and Neutron Stars and a few contributed talks. There
is also room for posters.

If you think you would be able to attend, please send send e-mail to Jean
Swank (swank@milkyway.gsfc.nasa.gov), with a title and brief abstract
if you would like to contribute.

If you will be sending an abstract to the AAS note that the deadline
is imminent.


If you wish to submit an abstract to the AAS meeting, the deadline is
October 19, 9 PM EDT = October 20, 1 AM UT. I.e. this Wednesday

If you are a foreign national and will want to come to Goddard, *we
must apply as soon as possible for a badge*, so please let Terri
Shaffer know. (terri@milkyway.gsfc.nasa.gov).
