>LITTLE FERRY, NJ.., June 2008 -- For the third year in a row, the
>nonprofit, membership-supported SETI League is proud to announce the
>availability of a published Proceedings for the annual Conference of The
>Society of Amateur Radio Astronomers. SARA is a SETI League Affiliate
>Society that represents several hundred amateur radio astronomers around
>the world. This Proceedings is published in conjunction with SARA's 2008
>Annual Meeting, being held June 29 through July 2, 2008, at the National
>Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO), Green Bank WV. The Proceedings includes
>papers on radio astronomy hardware, software, education, research
>strategies, and philosophy, several submitted by SETI League members.
>All papers in this formal Proceedings were peer-reviewed by a panel of SARA
>members with appropriate professional expertise and academic credentials.
>Prof. H. Paul Shuch, The SETI League's Executive Director Emeritus, also
>serves as SARA vice president on a volunteer basis. In that capacity, he
>served as editor of the 2008 SARA Conference Proceedings, as well as
>coordinator for the joint technical meeting. Further information about SARA
>and their annual conference can be found on the SARA website,
>The Table of Contents for the 2008 SARA Proceedings appears online, at
>http://www.setileague.org/seticon/sara2008.htm . One copy of the
>Proceedings is provided to each registered attendee at the 2008 SARA
>Conference. To benefit those SARA and SETI League members unable to attend,
>copies are now available from The SETI Store, at
>http://www.setileague.org/photos/premiums.htm , for a suggested
>contribution of $20 US postpaid to US addresses, or $27 US elsewhere. The
>SETI League still has copies of the last two year's SARA Proceedings
>available as well, for the same suggested contribution.
>Largely using radio telescopes and optical telescopes, SETI scientists seek
>to determine whether humankind is alone in the universe. Since Congress
>terminated NASA's SETI funding in 1993, The SETI League and other
>scientific groups have privatized the research. Amateur and professional
>scientists interested in participating in the search for intelligent alien
>life, and citizens wishing to help support it, should email
>join_at_setileague_dot_org, check the SETI League Web site at
>http://www.setileague.org/, send a fax to +1 (201) 641-1771, or contact The
>SETI League, Inc. membership hotline at +1 (800) TAU-SETI. Be sure to
>provide us with a postal address to which we will mail further information.
>The SETI League, Inc. is a membership-supported, non-profit [501(c)(3)],
>educational and scientific corporation dedicated to the scientific Search
>for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence.
>P.S. Tearsheets are always appreciated. Thank you.
