In recent years, many fields of astronomy have benefited greatly from the concentration of observing time in a few select fields on the sky, in which broad wavelength coverage, deep photometry, and spectroscopic surveys are combined to enable qualitatively new kinds of scientific investigation.
Each year the AAS brings members to Washington, DC, for Congressional Visits Day (CVD). This event, organized by the Science-Engineering-Technology Working Group (SETWG), gathers scientists, engineers, researchers, educators, and technology executives in the nation’s capital to raise visibility and support for science, engineering, and technology. This year CVD will be held Tuesday-Wednesday, 25-26 March 2014, with both days requiring full-day commitments, about 8 am to 6 pm. Business attire is required. Sign-ups are open now through 5:00 pm EST on Tuesday, 11 February 2014.
This Calendar includes meetings 1) occurring in North, South and Central America; 2) meetings of the IAU; and 3) meetings submitted by AAS Members.
A more comprehensive list of world-wide astronomy meetings is maintained by the Canadian Astronomy Data Centre, Victoria, BC.
The AAS also distributes a printed Membership Calendar.
