Astro2010: The Astronomy and Astrophysics Decadal Survey 

Community Town Hall Meetings 

Community Town Hall meetings held across the country have provided the astronomy and astrophysics community the opportunity to self organize and develop coordinated input into the Astro2010 survey process. The input from these events has been very valuable to deliberations within the survey.

The times and locations of the town meetings held to date are posted below. Also, the reports of the town halls have been posted where they have been provided by the organizers. Reports of the meetings should be prepared by the local organizers and sent to astro2010@nas.edu.
