The Society of Amateur Radio Astronomers (SARA) is seeking papers for its 2014 Western Regional Conference. The event takes place March 22-23, 2014, in Bishop, California, and at the Owens Valley Radio Observatory.

The first day of the conference will be spent at Cal Tech’s Owens Valley Radio Observatory, with presentations by OVRO staff and SARA members and supporters followed by a tour of the Combined Array for Research in Millimeter-Wave Astronomy (CARMA) in the nearby mountains. The conference will adjourn the next day to Bishop, for presentations by SARA members and supporters.

Papers are welcome on subjects directly related to radio astronomy, including hardware, software, education and tutorials, research strategies, observations, space weather, geomagnetism and solar radio, data collection, and philosophy.

SARA members and supporters wishing to present a paper should e-mail a letter of intent to the conference coordinator, including a proposed title and abstract no later than December 31, 2013. Include full name, affiliation, postal address, and e-mail address, and indicate whether you are willing to attend the conference to present your paper.
