The goal of the AAS Topical Conference Series (AASTCS, pronounced "aztecs") is to organize between three and five topical conferences of significant interest to the astronomical community each year through a competitive proposal process.
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.

AAS Announces New Topical Conference Series
The AAS is pleased to announce a new Topical Conference Series that will begin in late July and August of 2013, with proposals for possible conferences due June 1, 2012. The AAS vice presidents will competitively select three proposals for conferences in 2013 and may select more for future years.
The AAS Topical Conference Series, or AASTCS, (pronounced "aztecs"), will be composed of cutting-edge topical meetings representing frontier research in astronomy and astrophysics, planetary science, heliophysics or related scientific areas and provide an enjoyable venue to interact at depth with colleagues and fellow researchers. Attractive locations will be a feature of these conferences and we anticipate the first conferences will be held in a comfortable mountain setting with ample opportunity for recreation outside of the set meeting times.
See AASTCS page for further details.
