And there have been a few presentations to the AAS (American Astronomical Society). AAS posters are not specifically published anywhere, so this is basically the only way to see them (shy of visiting the Astronomy & Astrophysics Department of Villanova University). If you are interested in using any aspect of these posters in your research, we would greatly appreciate an e-mail - scott.engle@villanova.edu and edward.guinan@villanova.edu - since the research is constantly evolving and it's possible that the finding you wish to use has been refined/changed (or, dare we say it, even proven incorrect).

An early poster which outlined some of the motivations and background for the study, with a brief bit on activity levels:

And a more recent poster detailing some of our rotation work (photometry-based) and activity-age-rotation relationship building progress:

A further update on the program, presented at the 215th AAS Meeting in Washington, DC (Winner of the Chambliss Award):

This poster includes the addition of several WD-dM pairs. Ages can be determined for the WD companions, and then applied to the dM stars. This is perhaps the best method, currently available to us, for determining ages of a statistically relevant sample of dM stars across their main sequence lifetimes.
