The Marc Aaronson @ 30 Science Symposium and Public Talk

As many of you have heard, we are giving thanks for 30 years of the Marc Aaronson Lectureship/Prize. For all of Tucson there will be a Public Talk by Steward's own Nobel Laureate Brian Schmidt in Centennial Hall.  It will be held April 3 at 7:00pm and costs $15. Tickets are available starting Jan 27. 

For Tucson scientists and out-of-town scientists, there will be a two-day, PhD-level Science Symposium, April 3 and 4,  in which we welcome back many of the Aaronson Lecturers of the past 30 years. Registration is required. Early bird registration continues through Jan 31. For Symposium participants there is also a Symposium Banquet on April 4 (additional registration required).

The main website for information and registration and hotels and events can be found HERE. On this site you can read about Marc, read about the Aaronson Lectureship/Prize, find bios of the speakers, and find links to registration and to the symposium hotel. Tickets for the Brian Schmidt talk will be available at the Centennial Hall box office starting Jan 27 (we will provide a link when it becomes available). 

Oral talks are only being given by the Aaronson laureates. We welcome poster submissions from junior researchers (postdocs and grad students). We will try to accommodate all. More information will be sent to registered participants at a later date. We are still hoping to secure external funding for graduate students, so students should hold off on registering for the time being.
