General Michelson Summer Workshop Information

The 2006 Michelson Summer Workshop will consist of a series of tutorial lectures covering interferometry, including past, present, and future applications of the technique, particularly in its application to the detection of extrasolar planets.

The summer workshop will be held on the campus of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). It will be held from Monday, July 24 to Friday, July 28, 2006 with an opening reception on Sunday evening, July 23.

The Summer Workshop is intended for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, although applications for financial support from other individuals in the field of astronomical interferometry and planet finding will be considered.  Financial assistance for travel and accommodations may be available for successful applicants in accordance with U.S. government reimbursement regulations.  Local accommodations, near or on the Caltech campus, may be provided to participants for the duration of the workshop.  An early registration fee of $150 will be charged.
