Second workshop announcement:
Dust and Ice: Their Roles in Astrophysical Environments
to be held at the University of Georgia (UGA), March 30 – April 1, 2010, and sponsored by the Southeast Laboratory Astrophysics Community and its member institutions.
The workshop will provide a forum for discussions on dust grains, interstellar ices, and PAHs in astrophysical and atmospheric environments. In particular, advances and needs for relevant experimental and theoretical laboratory astrophysics will be highlighted.
The workshop will consist of invited talks and a poster session. Confirmed speakers include:
B-G Anderson (NASA/SOFIA);
Ara Chutjian (NASA/JPL);
Gary Douberly (UGA);
Michael Duncan (UGA);
Gary Ferland (U. Kentucky);
