Needed: Judges for Student Posters at the Winter AAS Meeting

Thursday, September 5, 2013 - 12:06

The AAS Executive Office is seeking members — a couple hundred or so! — to judge posters for the Chambliss Astronomy Achievement Student Awards at the 223rd AAS meeting in Washington, DC, in January. Volunteers will be asked to evaluate no more than five undergraduate- and/or graduate-student posters according to defined criteria. (New criteria designed to simplify the judges' task will be unveiled soon.)

Attention junior members: Advanced graduate students who have finished their coursework and are working on their dissertation research are now eligible to judge undergraduate posters.

Student poster authors will sincerely appreciate your expertise in judging their work. Judging will occur on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, 6, 7, and 8 January, at convenient times.

You can easily sign up to volunteer while registering for the meeting or submitting your own abstract. If you’ve already registered or submitted an abstract and didn’t volunteer, it’s not too late! Just contact me via email. Same goes if you have any questions.
