Conference Summary

The ASP's EPO Conference & 119th Annual Meeting took place at the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza, Chicago, IL September 5-7, 2007. In support of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific's (ASP) mission to increase the understanding and appreciation of astronomy, this national conference will focus on building and supporting a vibrant and connected community of individuals and groups engaged in educational and public outreach (EPO) in the disciplines of astronomy, astrobiology, space, and earth science.
