AAS Topical Conference Series Deadlines Are Approaching
Abstracts are due at 9 p.m. ET on May 1st for the three inaugural meetings in the new AAS Topical Conference Series (AASTCS):
- AASTCS1: Probes of Dark Matter on Galaxy Scales, 14-19 July 2013
- AASTCS2: Exascale Radio Astronomy, 21-26 July 2013
- AASTCS3: Giants of Eclipse, 28 July - 2 August 2013
All three meetings will be held at the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa in California, a comfortable mountain setting with ample opportunity for recreation outside of the set meeting times. Hotel reservations are due June 22nd, and regular registration is open through July 1st.
AASTCS1: Probes of Dark Matter on Galaxy Scales will bring together people who are working on probes of dark matter on galactic scales — on dynamical studies (utilizing new simulations as well as new observational data), gravitational lensing, kinematical studies of dwarf galaxies in the Local Group and beyond, and indirect probes of dark matter.
AASTCS2: Exascale Radio Astronomy has two primary goals: (i) to address the “big data” challenge in radio astronomy, and (ii) to deliver a white paper to encourage funding agencies to support exascale radio astronomy research in such areas as cosmology, galaxy evolution, dark energy and dark matter, and pulsars.
AASTCS3: Giants of Eclipse will provide a forum to discuss the physics of cool giant stars, examine new data, and compare the latest theories. Studies of giants in eclipsing binaries such as Epsilon Aurigae have advanced cool-star physics, and the role of these systems as astrophysical calibrators is central to the meeting.
