Meeting Announcement: Toward the Future of Very High Energy Gamma-ray Astronomy


Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to announce the workshop: "Toward the Future of Very High 
Energy Gamma-ray Astronomy" to be held Nov 8-9, 2007 at SLAC.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together an international group of 
scientists interested in the future of gamma-ray astronomy to define the 
direction of future instruments and discuss R&D projects for the next 
generation observatories such as CTA, HAWC and AGIS. This is the 4th 
workshop in the series of this kind with previous workshops being held in 
Malibu, Santa Fe and Chicago. While some time of the meeting will be 
devoted to summarise the scientific motivations for such instruments, 
drawing on the White Paper for the Division of Astrophysics of the American 
Physical Society, particular emphasis in the discussion will be devoted to 
technical challenges, design parameters and projected sensitivities of such 
future observatories. We invite you to participate and join us as we 
attempt to shape the future of this exciting, rapidly expanding field.

To register for the meeting and view a preliminary agenda, please go to the 
conference web site: http://www-conf.slac.stanford.edu/vhegra/
These pages will be updated as the date of the meeting gets closer to 
reflect changes in the agenda. A block of rooms at special rate has been 
reserved at the Stanford Guesthouse (former SLAC guesthouse). These rooms 
will be released by October, 10th, 2007, so please book in advance, 
refering to "FTA11".

We really hope that you will be able to attend our meeting.
