Joint Astronomy Centre
The UHH Research Park includes the headquarters for the Joint Astronomy Centre, the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory, Subaru, Gemini, the Smithsonian
Submillimeter Array and the Institute for Astronomy, plus the astronomers
at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. We are one of the major centres for astronomy in the world and encourage all visiting astronomers to take advantage of the proximity of these
institutes, and give a seminar while visiting Hilo. Your talk will
be advertised at each of the above institutes.
