On December 12th and 13th 1996, a few days before the Texas Symposium on Relativistic Astrophysics, Fermilab will host a Workshop on Weak Lensing. This workshop will provide an opportunity for those working in this field (or interested in working in this field) to discuss recent results, observational and data reduction techniques, and prospects for the future. Young researchers (graduate students, post docs) are encouraged to attend.
Those who plan to attend and have not told us so should fill out the registration form (if in doubt - fill it out). You should register for this workshop even if you have already registered for the Texas Symposium. If you would like to give a talk you can indicate this on the form. There is no registration fee.
The workshop will be held in Fermilab which is about 35 miles from downtown Chicago, the site of the Texas Symposium on Relativistic Astrophysics.
Talks and informal discussion will be held from 11AM-6PM on Thursday the 12th and 9:30AM-6PM on Friday the 13th. Click here for the schedule.
If enough people are interested in a tour of Fermilab instead of private discussions on Friday afternoon we will arrange such a tour. We need to schedule this in advance so if you are interested please fill out the Tour Registration Form.
Click here for a list of registered participants. If you are not on this list we do not think you are coming; so please register.
Breakfast and lunch will be available at the Fermilab cafeteria. We will organize dinner at some of the fine local restaurants. Unfortunately we will be unable to subsidize the cost of these meals. Coffee breaks will be provided between some of the talks.
Participants should make arrangements for their own accommodation. Please see the accommodation page for a list of hotels, rates, and phone numbers.
Options for getting to and from the workshop are listed on the transportation page. Maps are also available.
There will be no proceedings. However we encourage participants to send us links to any of their own World Wide Web sites which are relevant to weak lensing. We will try to categorize things but keep editorializing to a minimum, and will keep this site alive after the workshop.
Unfortunately we do not have money available to support participants in this workshop.
