Rules and regulations for submission of abstracts and presentation at an AAS meeting:
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.
Computers, wired and wireless connectivity will be available during meeting hours.
The AAS offers complimentary meeting registration to bona fide working journalists and public-information officers.
The American Astronomical Society is looking for volunteers to help out at the 222nd Meeting in Indianapolis, IN. We love getting help from undergrads, grads, postdocs, and local amateur astronomers at our meetings: to supervise sessions, help at registration, usher at events, and various other odd (but greatly appreciated) jobs. This is a great chance to meet and mingle with your peers, get up to date on the newest science, and pick up some cool freebies in the Exhibit Hall.
The AAS has organized a Roommate Search Forum if you would like to share a hotel room to save money. You will need to register on the forum to use it. Look for the "Register" link and follow the instructions. The form does not require an AAS membership number to register. You will be sent a confirmation email. Once confirmed you can read and post messages on the forum. It takes about 2 minutes.
