March 15-19, 2021
We will hold a Virtual CHARA Meeting on March 15-19, 2021. The format will be different this year, with shorter two-hour sessions to make it easier for participants to join from different time zones.
The meeting will include updates on recent developments at the CHARA Array, including work on the next generation of beam combiners, adaptive optics program, delay line control system upgrade, and highlights from science programs.
With the shorter meeting length, we plan to have representatives from each group present an overview of recent science results. We hope each of you will consider submitting a slide that could be included in these reviews.
The schedule with local times in each region is listed below:
