Where:

RAW is at the Pasadena Convention Center, on the same grounds as the Pacific Astronomy and Telescope Show. The Center is at 300 E. Green Street, Pasadena, CA 91101. We will be in the complex on the northeast corner of the campus (Euclid and Greene), just above the parking structure. Google maps has the center here.

From the convention center website you can get all the information you need about airports, public transportation, hotels, and so forth. You will also see the following description: Located in the heart of thriving downtown Pasadena, the Pasadena Convention Center is just 9 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles, 16 miles from Bob Hope/Burbank Airport and 29 miles from Los Angeles International Airport. Adding to its appeal, delegates can walk to four major hotels and Old Pasadena, a bustling 22-block historical area filled with 200 shops, boutiques, restaurants and clubs. Visitors will also enjoy renowned museums, golf, live theatre, and enviable weather. 

When:

Thursday (September 20) afternoon (12:00 registration, program starts at 1:00) and evening. Friday (September 21) all day (8:00 registration, program runs 9:15 to about 5:30). This is the Thursday and Friday before PATS. A detailed schedule is not yet available.

Who

The Riverside AstroImaging Workshop is meant for all imagers, or prospective imagers.

The presenters are leaders in their fields. This include imagers, imaging equipment and software developers, and those who have pioneered this field.

What:

Small classroom groups of 20 to 40 attendees will have hour long presentations from the leaders in the field. These comfortable groups allow time for questions and interaction. While attendees are welcome to follow along, it is not intended that these will be primarily "hands-on" application sessions.

Why:

This is meant to be a gathering place for all those who want to know how to make images or make them better. It will have a "big-tent" philosophy, with all welcome, not just beginners, or advanced, not just theoretical, or practical, not just technical, but aesthetic. There will be something for everybody.

Cost: (what's a "W" word for "Cost?")

Two day Early-Bird registration costs $110 and ends September 1. After September 1, two day registration is $130. Members of the Riverside Astronomical Society receive a $20 discount. (If you are not a member, you may join the RAS for $20 and receive the discount, making your first year membership "free.") You may also register for Thursday or Friday.
