Come Joins Us: NANOOS is celebrating its 20th anniversary with the annual Principal Investigators (PI) and Governing Council (GC) meetings on August 9-10, 2023, in Astoria, Oregon. The event is open to all PIs, GC members, and their affiliates, and will include informative talks, networking opportunities, and lively discussions.

Event Highlights: The PI meeting on August 9th will focus on a NANOOS vision for observations and modeling over the next decade and finding synergies among our current efforts. During the morning GC-PI meeting on August 10th, we will share annual NANOOS accomplishments and plans. In the afternoon, we will open the doors to the public for our main event featuring NANOOS science presentations and NANOOS Visualization Systems (NVS) user demos. Finally, we will close the evening with a special reception to celebrate NANOOS' past and launch its future.
