With the publication of the preliminary report of the Astro2010 Decadal Survey, "New Worlds, New Horizons in Astronomy & Astrophysics," it is time for members of the national and international astronomical community to understand the impact of the report on the various radio to sub-millimeter wave initiatives that have been proposed as well as the impact these initiatives will have on the major science questions identified by the Decadal Report.

The conference will be organized around the science questions identified within the Astro2010 Report and how radio to sub-millimeter to meter wavelength initiatives can and will respond to these exciting science imperatives.
