The annual meeting of the Keck Observatory user community will be held at Caltech this year. We hope to have resounding participation from the Caltech, UC, UH, NASA, TSIP, and WMKO members of our scientific partnership. Recent and interesting results from the Keck I and Keck II telescopes on Mauna Kea will be showcased. The meeting is also a forum for obtaining status reports on current and planned instrumentation, and for discussing initiatives and opportunities that are still far afield. An observatory strategic planning discussion will occur on the day after the science meeting.

Organizing Committee:
Tom Soifer -- Caltech
Jean Brodie -- UC
Rachel Akeson -- MSC/NASA
Andrew Blain -- CIT
