The Maui International Double Star Conference will cover all aspects of visual double star astrometry. Invited talks and contributed posters are welcome on double star history, instrumentation, observations, orbital analysis, catalogs, organizations, journals, and student research. All observational techniques from simple astrometric eyepieces and CCD astrometry, to lucky imaging, adaptive optics, and speckle, amplitude, and intensity interferometry will be covered. The conference will highlight the role of double star research in student education. The conference will conclude with a panel discussion on the current status and future prospects for double star astrometry. Registration is now open.
