IMAGE Working Group Meeting

Southwest Research Institute
San Antonio, TX
23-24 October 2002


The IMAGE team will be meeting jointly with the Cluster team on the first day and continue alone on the second day. Sessions will be in Building 189, which is across the street and down one building from the Space Science Building (178). A special reception has been organized to take place at the SwRI Cafeteria, starting promptly at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
