13th HEAD Meeting Splinter Proposal Form

The splinter meeting concept is provided as a service to HEAD attendees on a first-come, first-served basis. Splinter meetings are typically small group meetings held to discuss mission planning, collaborative science efforts or other non-science issues. They are not meant to replace science sessions at the meeting and will not be widely advertised by HEAD as meeting content.

HEAD is currently scheduling Splinter Meetings for Monday, 8 April 2013 and Tuesday, 9 April 2013 between the hours of 7:30pm-9:00pm. Spacing is limited, so submit your proposal today!
