Protostars & Planets V Testimonial from Dr. Bo Reipurth
“This meeting was exceptional in every way! This astronomy conference, Protostars and Planets V, which was held in October of 2005, was the largest gathering of astronomers to meet on the Big Island. With delegates coming from over 30 different countries, the meeting was hailed as a huge success.
With its strategic location in the mid Pacific, Hawaii proved to be an excellent meeting venue. The function space at the Hilton Waikoloa Village Hotel was extraordinary – meeting all of our needs and more.
What sets Hawaii apart from other meeting destinations is the demonstrable feeling of Aloha and hospitality combined with the greatest professionalism and expertise offered by the University of Hawaii at Hilo Conference Center. This – together with the high quality of astronomical research on the Big Island – makes the Big Island the perfect meeting destination.
