As often as you like, but you can only receive one travel grant per year, except in years in which an IAU General Assembly takes place when you can apply once for funds to travel to the IAU GA and once to another meeting. So, in IAU years only, you may receive two grants, one for the IAU General Assembly and one for another meeting.
You must hold a doctorate in astronomy, or closely related science and work at a US institution. Some possibility for funding graduate student travel does exist. Applications from students not yet done with their Ph.D. should be accompanied by an advisor recommendation letter. You also must be traveling to an international scientific meeting and your application must be approved by the ITG committee.
The program funds travel to international scientific meetings. Usually, funding is limited to round-trip coach-class airfare between the applicants' home institution and the airport closest to the meeting. Some exceptions for necessary ground transportation are possible.
No. Funds from the grant, cannot be used to fund travel to any AAS or AAS Division meeting, whether held internationally or in the United States.
No. The ITG Application form is a comprehensive form for the ITG program. The General Assembly (or GA) only occurs every three years. If you are attending an IAU sponsored meeting, or any other meeting, simply write the title and dates on the lines below the General Assembly check box.
In conventional mathematical notation, an italic letter with a subscript generally denotes a variable taken at or with reference to some condition (indexed by the subscript). Thus, R om , the subscript m appearing here in the same way as for other single italic variables, would be the correct notation for, say, observed resonance, optical radius, etc.
AAS journalsclose up dependent prefixes (non-, ultra-, sub-, super-, multi-, etc.) Multi- is a dependent prefix (you cannot say "the cell is multi"), and so is closed up. But "single" is not a dependent prefix; it is normal adjective (you can say "the cell is single"), and so the proper form is a hyphenated compound adjective, single-cell.
Compound terms such as "early type," "V band," and "intermediate redshift" are hyphenated when they are used as adjectives (as in "many early-type stars were seen in intermediate-redshift V-band observations") but open as nouns ("we find many early types at intermediate redshifts in the V band"), following conventional English style for compound nouns and adjectives.
AAS journals follow standard practice in capitalizing generic terms that form a part of a proper name of a distinct, unique geographical or celestial region.
AAS journals follow the Chicago Manual of Style in not capitalizing the names of theories, concepts, and ideas, such as "fundamental plane."
"Comprise" means "contains, is made up of, embraces": the whole comprises the parts, the parts compose the whole. "Is comprised of" should properly be rephrased as either "comprises" or "is composed of" ("the galaxy comprises many stars" or "the galaxy is composed of many stars").
Split infinitives are an old chimaera of English grammar. Actually, it is not true that it is illegal to split infinitives in English. To quote the Chicago Manual of Style , "Although from about 1850 to 1925 many grammarians stated otherwise, it is now widely acknowledged that adverbs sometimes justifiably separate the "to" from the principal verb." (5.106) ApJ , as a modern journal, is happy to concur.
Physics, while plural in derivation, is generally construed as a singular noun except when referring to several "physics" (i.e., two or more different systems of physics). In this sentence, where the meaning is "uncertainty in the field of physics," the singular form "needs" would be correct.
That depends on the number of changes you need to make. If it is only a few minor corrections then you should wait until you are contacted by the copy editor or when you receive the proofs. If the changes are extensive, contact the editorial offices so that the paper can be pulled from its assigned issue. The revised paper will have to be sent to the scientific editor to review the changes. Once the changes are accepted, the paper will be assigned to another issue.
Image programs such as Adobe Photoshop can be used to make the conversion.
CMYK stands for cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. Most computer-generated figure files are created using the RGB (red, green, blue) color model, which is used for devices, such as computer monitors, that create color with light. The CMYK system uses the 4 process colors used in printing, and is therefore the necessary format for figure files to be used for printing.
