The schedule of talks for the Green Bank Workshop on Solar Radiophysics with the Frequency Agile Solar Radiotelescope (FASR) is coming together (see the first announcement ).  Near the end of this page you will find the schedule so far.  This announcement fills in some of the details you will need to know to arrange travel to the meeting and arrange accomodation.

The workshop is generously supported by NSF, NRAO (our hosts), and NASA.  Travel support is limited, however, and arrangements will be made on an individual basis.  Please contact Stephen White ( for more information.  This will be an inexpensive meeting, since there is no registration fee, all meals at Green Bank are provided by NRAO, and some accomodation will be free or supplemented by NRAO depending on your choice of location.

Lodging and meals will be organized by NRAO.  Participants will be housed either in the Observatory residence hall, an Observatory house, or a nearby motel.  Most meals will be in the Observatory caffeteria.

We have purposely scheduled the meeting to be just before the American Geophysical Union meeting in Washington.  Travel arrangements will be the responsibility of each participant. NRAO will attempt to organize travel for those who can arrive at Charlottesville, VA, the location of the NRAO headquarters.  We will provide detailed travel information at a later time.

Green Bank, West Virginia, is the site of the first telescopes of the NRAO. It is located in a Radio Quiet Zone in the mountains of West Virginia and is surrounded by the Monogahela National Forest.  There are many opportunities for outdoor activities in the area which participants may take advantage of before or after the Workshop.

The Green Bank facility of the NRAO has more than 100 employees including 15 radio astronomers and an equal number of engineers and other professionals.  The Observatory is the site of the new 100 meter, unblocked-aperture, radio telescope which is now undergoing initial tests. Information about the NRAO at Green Bank can be obtained from the web site: .

There will be a specific website for the Workshop containing detailed travel information, lists of participants and so on.  For now, email concerning the Workshop should be addressed to .  You may also call:
Phone:  (304) 456-2227
Fax:      (304) 456-2229

If you are interested in the Workshop please complete and submit the online form . We ask that you do so as soon as possible,  due to the extremely limited accommodations at Green Bank.  A second announcment will go out around 1 March, 2002.
