AL-Con 2023 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana is just around the corner. Have you made your reservations?
From the Astronomical League:
The 2023 Astronomical League Convention(ALCon 2023) will be held in Baton Rouge, Louisiana from July 26th to 29th. Our theme will be “Astronomical Gumbo,” which represents the blend of diverse subfields and people within the vast field of astronomy. Gumbo is a dish that combines the culinary practices of Africans, Native Americans, French, and Spanish, and is often used as a metaphor for the mix of cultures that exist in southern Louisiana. Baton Rouge, which is French for “red stick,” is the capital of Louisiana and sits along the mighty Mississippi River. The city’s many attractions include a planetarium, the new and old State Capitol buildings, and many museums. Serving as the melting pot between the urban cityscape and the rural scenes of nature, Baton Rouge is home to plenty of art, music, and great food for visitors and families to enjoy.
