MONTHLY MEETING: Monday, February 19th, 7:30 p.m., Classroom A, 3rd floor, Center
on Church, Downtown
Roanoke. This month’s meeting program features our own Vice President, John Wenskovitch.
John’s pursuing his PhD at Virginia Tech in a subfield of computer science devoted
to communicating visually the vast amounts of data various disciplines collect. Witty,
articulate and engaging, John will introduce how astronomers and computer scientists
are collaborating to create the images, interactive tools and animations that make
today’s burgeoning astronomical knowledge accessible. Make plans to join us on the
19th for John’s talk, and for our monthly What’s Up review, observing and outreach
reports and other updates and announcements!
