UVCS 2000 Science Meeting
Map of Mount Desert Island
Location & Time
The UVCS 2000 Science Meeting will be held on 24 - 28 September 2000 at the historic Asticou Inn, Northeast Harbor, Maine on Mount Desert Island. Northeast Harbor is surrounded by Acadia National Park which offers some of the most beautiful scenery in the United States with its rocky shoreline and its coastal mountains. Bar Harbor, which is less than 30 minutes away by car, has restaurants, night spots, shopping and a myriad of recreational activities. The reception desk at the Asticou Inn will open at 15:00 on 24 September and the Reception and Opening Lecture will begin at 18:00. The scientific meeting will end at 12:30 on 28 September.
Registration & Hotel Information
Late September is a popular time to visit Down East Maine because it is the beginning of the fall foliage season. Please register for the meeting and make your hotel reservations as soon as possible. We request that you register for the meeting and pay by credit card (Master Card or Visa only) on the web at http://www.asticou.com/ or by mail and a check in US dollars to UVCS Science Meeting 2000, c/o Ms. Brenda Bernard, Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, Mail stop 50, 60 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA 02138. Your reservation will not be completed until the registration fee is paid by credit card or we receive your check. More information about registration is provided later in this announcement.
Room reservations should be made directly with the Asticou Inn or, if space is not available, there are other hotels (provided later in this announcement) that are holding rooms for this meeting. We are holding about 40 rooms and suites at the Asticou. We need for you to make your reservations at the Asticou Inn no later than 1 August in order for us to hold the rooms. Because more than 80 people have indicated they will attend, we expect that all rooms at the Asticou will be committed very soon. More information about hotel reservations is provided later in this announcement.
If emergencies arise at the time of the meeting, you can call our EMERGENCY PHONE NUMBER at the Asticou Inn: (207)-276-3344, or 1-800-258-3373. Tell the receptionist that this is an emergency call for the UVCS 2000 Science Meeting, and we will try to assist you as soon as possible. Please use this option only for a real emergency.
Reception and Opening Lecture
The scientific program will begin on 24 September 2000 at 18:00 with an Opening Lecture by John Kohl entitled Ultraviolet Spectroscopy of the Extended Solar Corona: Past, Present and Future. This will be accompanied by a reception at the Asticou Inn. The reception will include passing food, wine, juices and soft drinks. It will be equivalent to a light supper.

The scientific research of the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory has reached a stage where most observations and analyses involve more than one SOHO instrument and often involve instruments from other spacecraft and ground observatories. This is especially true of UVCS where its spectroscopy is contributing to new insights into the nature of coronal mass ejections and high speed and slow speed wind acceleration. The UVCS data are being combined with data from EIT, LASCO, CDS, SUMER, and TRACE as well as data from Spartan 201, Yohkoh, Ulysses, ACE, Cassini, Galileo, the Mars Global Surveyor, various sounding rocket flights and ground based observations from HAO Mauna Loa, EISCAT, Meudon Observatory, Nancay Radio Telescope, Noveyama Radio Polarimeter, USNSO, VLA and several eclipse expeditions.
The Scientific program for UVCS 2000 emphasizes two primary themes: 1) Coronal Holes and the High Speed Solar Wind, and 2) Coronal mass ejections. The first full day of the meeting will comprise presentations describing both observational and theoretical progress toward the identification of the physical processes responsible for extended coronal heating and acceleration of the high speed solar wind. The third full day will describe the progress toward establishment of comprehensive empirical models of coronal mass ejections and insights into the physical processes responsible for their heating and acceleration. Coordinated CME observations are providing three dimensional flow velocities, particle densities and temperatures, the ionization state of the ejecta and elemental abundances. The meeting also includes presentations on the evolution of various coronal structures over the solar cycle and a session on the UVCS calibration and characterization. There will be posters that provide additional information on these and other subjects. The final morning of the meeting will provide summaries of workshop sessions on Coronal Holes and the High Speed Wind and on Coronal Mass Ejections. Participants are encouraged to come to that session prepared (with one or two transparencies) for in depth discussions. Everyone is invited to present a poster and participate in the workshop sessions.

Route 3, RR 2 Box 180, Bar Harbor, ME 04609 http://www.acadia.net/parkentrance
The following transportation information is subject to change.
The most convenient airports to the meeting site are: 1) Bangor International Airport (about 1.5 hour by car), Portland Jetport (about 4 hours by car) and Logan International Airport, Boston (about 6 hours by car). There are also smaller airports in the Mount Desert Island area including Bar Harbor Airport (about 30 minutes by car).
If you have time, the drive to Northeast Harbor from Boston or Portland is pleasant. Just follow Interstate Route 95 to Maine. North of Freeport, ME, you may wish to take a leisurely drive along the coast on US Route 1 via Brunswick ME, or follow Route 95 or the Maine turnpike to Augusta and then take ME State Route 3 to Mount Desert Island. Those less interested in sight seeing may wish to fly to Bangor and drive east on Route 1A to Ellsworth and then follow Route 3 south to Mount Desert Island. The Bar Harbor Airport is located on Route 3, and it is just 30 minutes drive from the Asticou Inn.
Ground transportation in Down East Maine is convenient by car. You can use a car to get to and from the hotels and the Asticou Inn, to restaurants, and to explore Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. You would need to rent a car at one of the airports or arrange a car pool. Timely reservations are needed to ensure rental car availability. If you have any difficulty making such arrangements and would like help arranging transportation from the Bangor or Hancock County Airports or between your hotel and the Asticou Inn, please contact Mari Paz Miralles (by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org; by telephone at 617 496 7925, or by mail at Center for Astrophysics, Mail Stop 50, 60 Garden Street, Cambridge, MA 02138).
A map of Mount Desert Island is available here. To reach the Asticou Inn, go to Mount Desert Island via the Trenton Bridge on Route 3. You will cross Thompson Island. Just as you reach Mt Desert Island, the road forks. Leave Route 3 which follows the left fork and Bear RIGHT onto Route 102 leaving the service station on your left. Proceed on 102 until you come to a traffic light. Turn LEFT at the light onto Route 3/198 (i.e., the two routes are together at that point). Continue straight on Route 3/198 toward Northeast Harbor. Just before you reach the town, you will pass a large stone walled house on your left. Shortly thereafter, Route 3 will turn left toward Bar Harbor. Take the LEFT turn on Route 3 (i.e., do not follow the road into Northeast Harbor). The Asticou Inn is 550 yards beyond the turn on the right side of the road.
