The annual meeting of the Keck Observatory user community will be held at Caltech this year. We hope to have resounding participation from the Caltech, UC, UH, NASA, TSIP, and WMKO members of our scientific partnership. Recent and interesting results from the Keck I and Keck II telescopes (and Interferometer) on Mauna Kea will be showcased. The meeting is also a forum for obtaining status reports on current and planned instrumentation, and for discussing initiatives and opportunities that are still far afield. An observatory strategic planning discussion will occur on the afternoon before the day of the science meeting. [kona coast sunset]
