Welcome to CraigFest 2020!

Celebrating the life and career of J. Craig Wheeler on the occasion of his retirement!

After a long and illustrious career, our friend J. Craig Wheeler has officially become Emeritus! Let's gather to celebrate his contributions to astrophysics and to the careers of so many of us. 

CraigFest will be held May 27-29, 2020, in Austin, TX, at the Avaya Auditorium on the University of Texas campus. We plan to have an excellent scientific program covering the many areas of astrophysics Craig has contributed to, and beyond!
