Workshop on Anomalous Microwave Emission (AME) - 2-4 July 2012, JBCA, Manchester


The first workshop dedicated to Anomalous Microwave Emission (AME) was held at the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics (JBCA) at the University of Manchester during 2 - 4 July 2012. The workshop presented and discussed the latest research on this interesting field of radio astronomy and was attended by approximately 40 people. We hope that there will be another workshop held in 2013. If you are interested, please let us know.

Below are the talk titles and pdf slides for each talk in approximately the order they were given at the workshop. We hope they are useful to you.
