As announced before, the busy week will take place at the DSOC in Socorro, New Mexico:
Remote participation will be available.


There are plenty of hotels near the DSOC in Socorro, particularly along California Street. Two that are recommended are:
Holiday Inn Express +1-575-838-4600
Socorro Hotel and Suites (Best Western) +1-575-838-0556
There is also the NRAO Guesthouse, which is explained on the DSOC webpage linked above.


It is easiest to fly into Albuquerque and travel to Socorro by car (approximately 1 hour drive along a major highway).
To reduce the number of cars making the journey, we will attempt to put attendees in contact with each other so that they can self-organise carpooling. Stay tuned for this, and please send me a message if you wish to be included in that process.


If you have not yet expressed interest in attending in person or remotely, but would like to do so, please register:
