NGSC at the January 2009 AAS Meeting
The NOAO Gemini Science Center (NGSC) was part of the larger NOAO booth at the January 2009 AAS meeting in Long Beach. Most NGSC staff from Tucson and La Serena attended the meeting and were available to help PIs with their Phase IIs and to answer questions from the community. Posters highlighted NGSC staff contacts, the Gemini Science Archive, and Classical Observing. Brochures were available on FLAMINGOS-2, GMOS, GNIRS, Michelle, NICI, NIFS, NIRI, Phoenix, T-ReCS, TEXES, the Gemini Science Archive, How to Propose for US Time on Gemini, Tips on the Gemini Proposal Process, and Tips on the Gemini Phase II Process.
