The seventh annual CHARA Collaboration meeting was held in Atlanta, GA on the Georgia State University Campus during February 28 through March 2, 2011.

Members of the CHARA collaboration gathered at GSU in Atlanta for a three-day review of scientific and technical progress made during 2010. The scientific program was once again organized by Dr. Theo ten Brummelaar, CHARA's Associate Director. We thank Sandy Land and Susan McAlister for their efforts in daily catering and the Tuesday evening reception held at the University's Rialto Center for the Performing Arts.
