Rev. 4.2: 30-Nov-2000: Time schdule revised. Add request to speakers.
Rev. 4.3: 01-Dec-2000: Add TEL & FAX No. of Science Meeting Office for contact with participants attending the meeting

       The 2nd Solar-B Science Meeting
                           Dec 4-6, 2000


In the 2nd Solar-B science meeting science goals, targets of observation,  methods
of observation shall seriously be discussed under the current instrument design. The
new science outputs from Solar-B are central issues of the discussion.  To achieve
the Solar-B science goals,  the software developments for Solar-B operation and
data analysis will also be discussed.

Meeting Schedule

The revised schedule is as follows:


LOC requests all speakers to prepare a copy of viewgraphs for proceedings.
Please leave the copy on the reception desk before the end of meeting.

When a speaker prepares PC presentation,

 (1) LOC can get the file from your anonymous ftp site,
 (2) the speaker can send the file to as an attachment
      file if the file size is not huge.

 LOC prefers the former to latter.

Call for Poster:

LOC prepares A0 size poster boards for participants. Both instrument introduction
and science work are welcome. Please use this opportunity for good discussion.
