The Occultation Section of the Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand (RASNZ) is pleased to announce that the Eleventh Trans-Tasman Symposium on Occultations (TTSO11) will be held in May 2017, in conjunction with the 2017 RASNZ Conference.
TTSO11 will feature reviews of recent occultation activity and results, data reduction methods and techniques, updated information on equipment, and sessions devoted to the practical needs of both new and more advanced observers. The meeting will be attended by occultation observers throughout Australia and New Zealand, and we hope to welcome the attendance and participation of observers from further afield.
RASNZ 2017 will be held in Dunedin, New Zealand, and hosted by the Dunedin Astronomical Society. TTSO11 attendees are encouraged to also attend some or all of the RASNZ events. More information on the RASNZ meeting is available on its website.
TTSO11's sessions will be follow the RASNZ Conference, starting with presentations on Monday May 15 and ending after lunch on Tuesday May 16.
Registrations for TTSO11 will be done via the RASNZ website.

Some instructions on how to use MeetCheap are given below;
Login to MeetCheap using this link http://login.myownmeeting.com/conference,60602806. Once the page opens, put your full name or initials in the dialogue box and login . This allows us to see who is actually there. Steve Kerr or S Kerr is more preferable than just SteveK. No password is required and the site cookie remembers your login name so subsequent logins only require you clicking 'OK'. The moderator question on the login box must remain as 'NO' otherwise you cannot login. Do not modify that URL in any way as it will not work. It is Java based so some people may have issues but it usually works OK.
