AA OSA Meetings....

From the AA OSA....

Sorry for not updating you earlier on the AA OSA meeting for tomorrow, Tuesday, 15 January 2013.

We are having our Winter Organizational Meeting (! starting at 7pm !) to discuss the preparations and support needed for our next two special events.

We need as many people involved as we can to make these special events a success.  Please be there!

AA OSA Industry Night / Job Fair is scheduled for Tuesday, 26 February 2013 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM at AA SPARK Central.  Michelle Stock (Chair of the Mi-Light, Michigan's Photonics Cluster) will give an overview of Optics & Photonics in Michigan and we hope to have many companies participate.

AA OSA Meeting / Talk by Dr. Stahl of NASA Marshall (National OSA Speaker) talking on "The James Webb Space Telescope: The First Light Machine" is scheduled for Tuesday, 12 March 2013 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM at EECS Rm# 1005.

Our February AA OSA Meeting / Talk has also been moved - from Tuesday to Wednesday, 13 February 2013 - Dr. Yang Li (Rigaku Innovative Technologies) will talk about "Thin-Film Silicon Solar Cells".  It will also be at EECS Rm# 1005.

Note that the starting time for the Winter Organizational Meeting has been moved up to 7pm as there will not be a dinner at Paesano's before hand.  Please join us and provide us with your input and help to make these special events a success!

  1. Hi Dave,

    I left out that tonight's meeting is at the U-M EECS building, in room 1005. Thanks for reminding me. This is also true of the talks in February and March. Dr. Stahl's talk might generate more enthusiasm and if we need a larger room, we will let you know ahead of time. The Industry Night event will be at SPARK Central in downtown AA on Liberty.

    The normal flyer (which we will be sending out prior to each event) will indicate the directions, but here is an excerpt:

    Map to seminar site: (or see AA OSA website). Free parking after 6 pm east of the Lurie Engineering Building (at the intersection of Beal & Bonisteel). All attendees are invited to join the AA OSA officers for dinner with the speaker at Paesano's Restaurant, 3411 Washtenaw Avenue (near US-23) in Ann Arbor at 6:00 pm, prior to the seminar. A map to the restaurant location can be found online at the link .

    Parking is available for free in the nearby parking lots at the time of the meeting (after 6pm I think). I can give you further guidance later, if you wish. I park in the lot to the East of the buildings.
