Reforming of the steering committee
An outcome of the May ASTeRIX AGM was a strong expression to maintain a formal Steering Committee. A big thank you to those of you who responded to the steering committee section of the questionnaire.
Several scholar-artists from the ASTeRIX community are involved in the “Big Bang” public opening and research showcase of the Science and Academic Building (Arlan, Leanne, Dana, Monique, D. Andrew). If you are participating, please let us know.
