PaulBoltwood- Amateur-Professional Partnerships
by Paul Boltwood © copyright 1999-2000
The following are excerpts from the "AMATEUR-PROFESSIONAL PARTNERSHIPS IN ASTRONOMICAL RESEARCH AND EDUCATION SYMPOSIUM" in Toronto July, 1999, and the "AMATEUR-PROFESSIONAL COLLABORATION IN ASTRONOMY" session at the A.A.S. meeting in Rochester June 2000.
The purpose of the symposium was to expand and enhance the quality, quantity, and variety of amateur-professional partnerships and cooperation in astronomical research and education.
This symposium was preceded by other facets of "Partners in Astronomy", the first-ever joint meeting of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, and the American Association of Variable Star Observers.
This web page contains some of the papers and presentations given by one of the participants and his professional collaborator - namely Paul Boltwood and Dr. Alberto Sadun. It also includes some information that was shown informally to some of the participants.
