We cordially invite Puerto Rican astronomers with interests in astronomy, atmospheric and planetary science to present talks in the Annual Arecibo Observatory Scientific Conference to be held at the Arecibo Observatory on December 27 and 28, 2012. The conference will provide an opportunity for attendees to present their own scientific research, interact with scientific colleagues, discuss matters of mutual interest, learn about the Arecibo facilities, and foster new collaborations. The proximity of the 305-m Arecibo telescope will provide an appropriate context for these activities. We request you to submit short abstracts of your research.
