For Immediate Release, Please

LITTLE FERRY, NJ.., January, 2001 -- The SETI League, Inc., nonprofit leaders in the privatized Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence, will be holding its first Technical Symposium the weekend of April 28 - 29, 2001, at the College of New Jersey (formerly Trenton State College) in Trenton NJ. SETI League members from around the world will present papers on radio astronomy, microwave communications, and the hardware, software, and search strategies being used to seek scientific evidence of other intelligent civilizations in the cosmos. In attendance will be a respectable sampling of the SETI League's 1200 members from 60 countries, including many of the over 100 SETI League members building and operating their own observing stations.

Preregistration is requested by not later than 1 April 2001. The conference registration fee ($30 US for current SETI League members, and $80 for non-members) includes one copy of the Conference Proceedings, being published as a service to The SETI League by the American Radio Relay League. An Awards Banquet is scheduled for Saturday night, with banquet tickets available only in advance, at $30 US. The Banquet will include a guest speaker and door prizes, and culminate in presentation of the sixth Giordano Bruno Memorial Award, The SETI League's highest honor, to an individual who has made significant contributions to the art and science of SETI. Registration details, lodging and transportation information will be posted by February 1st to The SETI League's website, at <>

The SETI League's seventh Annual Membership Meeting will be held in conjunction with the Technical Symposium, on Sunday, 29 April 2001 beginning at 10 AM. SETI League members in good standing, their guests, interested radio amateurs, amateur and professional astronomers, and members of the press are cordially invited. Since a quorum is required to transact business, all SETI League members are encouraged to attend.

SETI scientists seek to determine through microwave and optical measurements whether humankind is alone in the universe. Since Congress terminated NASA's SETI funding in 1993, The SETI League and other scientific groups have been attempting to privatize the research. Experimenters interested in participating in the search for intelligent alien life, or citizens wishing to help support it, should email to join_at_setileague_dot_org, check the SETI League Web site at, send a fax to +1 (201) 641-1771, or contact The SETI League, Inc. membership hotline at +1 (800) TAU-SETI. Be sure to provide us with a postal address to which we will mail further information. The SETI League, Inc. is a membership-supported, non-profit [501(c)(3)], educational and scientific corporation dedicated to the electromagnetic Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence.

P.S. Tearsheets are always appreciated. Thank you.
