Meg Urry reviews the very busy, very successful 225th AAS meeting held 4-8 January 2015 at the Washington State Convention Center.
Meetings Tag Definition: Relates to the overall Meetings program and everything produced by the Meetings Department. Additional meeting specific tags (e.g. aas222) are used to categorize items for individual meetings.
- Items produced by other departments for a specific meeting do not contain the general Meetings tag. They are categoriezed within their subject area (e.g. Press, Policy, Public Outreach) plus they contain the specific meeting tag (e.g. aas222).
- Members may subscribe to the main Meetings category to receive notifications for ALL meetings OR they may subscribe to individual meetings using the specific meeting number tags.
The AAS seeks session proposals for the 223rd AAS meeting in Washington, DC, 5-9 January 2014. We welcome proposals on both broad and narrow topics that will appeal to large and small groups.
The abstract deadline for the Long Beach meeting is today at 9:00pm ET. You may have notice some slowness today because of the amount of traffic to the AAS website but it should be more responsive now. We apologize for any inconvenience.

AAS meetings are the largest and most logistically complex astronomy meetings in the world. We ask all attendees to work together to enhance the value of the meetings by keeping a few simple things in mind.
The AAS and AGU Warn about Housing Pirates
A housing pirate is an unauthorized housing provider that often claims a vague affiliation with a conference and offers reduced rates to attendees. The AAS Executive Office is the official housing bureau for the TESS 2015 Meeting in Indianapolis and only they can guarantee room reservations and rates.
A feature of every winter AAS meeting, including the upcoming 225th meeting in Seattle, the Career Center facilitates potential employer-employee connections and can help you land your next position.
