National Radio Science Meeting

ATTENTION:  URSI Participants (as of 12:45, 1/5)

Dear National Radio Science Attendees,

We have revised the URSI conference agenda for tomorrow (Friday) in view of the inclement weather.  As a reminder, please note that the university has closed the campus for today, Thursday, January 5th.  We will keep you advised of any delays or closures that could potentially affect tomorrow as they are communicated to us.

As of now, the revised conference schedule for tomorrow is as follows:

* All sessions will take place as originally scheduled for tomorrow (Friday).

* The Student Paper Contest has been cancelled. We are declaring all three student finalists to be first-place winners and they will split the award money.

* The Hans Liebe Lecture Event will take place as scheduled tomorrow (Friday). This will be in Math 100.

* All Business Meetings tomorrow will take place at 5:00 p.m. in the following rooms: Commission B (1B40), Commission D (155, unless combining with B), Commission G (245), Commission H (265), Commission K (151).

* We will hold the Plenary Session tomorrow evening in Math 100 from 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

We are attempting to organize a catered event tomorrow after the plenary session (in the Engineering lobby) and will send updates to participants accordingly.

On behalf of USNC-URSI, I am very sorry for the inconvenience, especially to those who papers got cancelled today.

Thank you,

David R. Jackson

Chair, USNC-URSI
