Complimentary registration for AAS & Division meetings (except where published Division policies differ) is available to working press.
Press Tag Definition: Items related to press coverage at Meetings, the overall Media & Press program and the Press Office are all tagged as Press. All other items are tagged by their content's subject area (e.g. Grants and Prizes: AAS is used for media announcing the Russell Lectureship).
- For meeting items, Press is used as the main category, but the the specific meeting tag is also used (e.g. aas222).
- Members can choose to be notified whenever a Press Release is published (i.e. subscribe by content type). Members that are not subscribed to all AAS Press Releases can be notified through the relevant subject category (e.g. Anybody subscribed to Public Policy would receive the AAS Press Releases about the Hubble Servicing Mission.).
The world’s largest meeting of professional astronomers is coming to the Hawaii Convention Center in 2015. The International Astronomical Union (IAU) will hold its triennial General Assembly August 3-14, 2015, in Honolulu, on the island of Oahu. A vote at this year’s General Assembly in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, selected Hawaii as the location of the 2015 meeting against very strong competition from two other sites.
