An International Workshop on Collaboration and Coordination
Among NEO Observers and Orbital Computers
Kurashiki City Art Museum
October 23 to 26, 2001
The Japan Spaceguad Association would like to hold a workshop from October 23 through 26, 2001, at the Kurashiki City Art Museum (near the Bisei Spaceguard Center). Following the workshop, we will inaugurate the Bisei Spaceguard Center on October 27.
Purpose of the Workshop:In these years NEO matters have been discussed at different occasions and organizations. Number of NEO observers and orbital computers has been increasing and they have been producing excellent results. However, it seems that there were not much discussions on collaboration and coordination among them and some critical debates between those teams were brought. Therefore, the SOC intends to make this workshop to solve the problems or at least to start to its solution. Program of this workshop will be arranged with some introductory reports by NEO observers and orbital computers and set aside many hours for discussions.
SOC members:Syuzo Isobe (Co-Chair), Donald K. Yoemans (Co-Chair), Tom Morgan, Bob McMillan, Ted Bowell, Andrea Carusi, Brian Marsden, Richard Binzel, Karri Muinonen, and Mark Bailey
ProgramAbstracts are here.
