HEAT is... well, hot
We just had the first High-Energy Astrophysics Teleconference (HEAT) this afternoon, hosted by yours truly. The idea is to bring observers and theorists interested in high-energy astrophysics together on a regular basis, to share information, present new results, and generally build our small, diverse, and highly dispersed community. We had a round of introductions followed by a little science discussion, and suggestions for future topics and presentations; everthing went very well. The next meeting is scheduled for Friday October 13th at noon — please email me if you are interested in taking part.
