Loyola Marymount University

Marina del Rey / Los Angeles, California


Plans are well underway for an exciting and unique national MAS meeting. The Southern California Microbeam Analysis Society (SCMAS) will be hosting the meeting at Loyola Marymount University located on the bluffs just north of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) overlooking the ocean and Santa Monica. The 27th national meeting will occupy the entire university campus and a portion of the Pacifica Hotel both of which are located very close to the beach, Marina del Rey. Virtually all of the campus facilities will be available and interaction between members will be inevitable (and hopefully peaceful). It will be a unique opportunity for members and visitors to socialize and explore new ideas. Because of the apartment style housing available at the university it will be convenient (and inexpensive) for families to come to the meeting site and enjoy the nearby attractions in Southern California. Planning is underway to accommodate spouses and children with activities on campus and off. We hope to have child care arranged at the meeting site to accommodate the smallest guests.


The 1993 MAS Meeting will be held in conjunction with the 1993 Analytical Electron Microscopy Workshop. The program committees are planning to present a diverse technical program with sessions ranging from photonics to forensics. The Southern California area will also afford an opportunity for local attendance and participation from the universities, aerospace and other high tech industries in the area. Student participation in the meeting should set new highs and help our society make contact with new researchers in microanalysis.


The LA area offers a wide range of activities from the obvious: Disneyland, Magic Mountain, Universal Studios, and Knots Berry Farm, to the less obvious: Hollywood Bowl, Getty Museum, Huntington Library, Rodeo Drive, TV shows, and Beverly Hills. These activities are all within an hour's drive and some only minutes from the meeting site. All of this, combined with the beach close at hand, should provide significant stimulation for the guests and the members attending this meeting.


With the sea breezes coming off the ocean, daytime temperatures are generally in the mid 70's to low 80's and evening temperatures are usually in the low 60's or the 50's depending on the fog. For a meeting which is being held in the summer, in what is actually a desert, it should be quite comfortable and possibly a bit cool in the evenings. The nearby marina should offer some interesting opportunities for exhibitors' social events.





With Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) just four miles to the south, travel connections to the meeting will be uncomplicated.


Don't forget to mark these dates on your calendar - July 11-16 - and please join us. For further information contact:
