A housing pirate is an unauthorized housing provider that often claims a vague affiliation with a conference and offers reduced rates to attendees. The AAS Executive Office is the official housing bureau for the 221st AAS Meeting in Long Beach, CA and only they can guarantee room reservations and rates.
AAS meetings are dynamic gatherings of professional astronomers from around the world. The winter meetings typically boast 2000 participants or more. The four days are filled with scientific sessions, both poster and oral as well as invited sessions from prominent researchers with exciting results. The summer meetings have topical sessions, which are more lengthy oral sessions focused on particular topics. The meeting program is decided upon by the three vice-Presidents with logistical details provided by the AAS meeting coordinator.
Currently the winter meeting location rotates between four cities, Washington, D.C.; Austin, Texas; Seattle, Washington; and Long Beach, California. Summer meetings are held in a variety of locations, which are chosen by the Council in response to proposals from interested institutions.
Divisions hold meetings that may be attended by any AAS member. The DPS and the DDA each hold one meeting a year separate from the AAS general Meetings. The HEAD and the SPD meet occasionally apart from and occasionally with the AAS. On occasion the SPD has also met jointly with the American Geophysical Union. The Historical Astronomy Division usually meets jointly with the AAS. Schedules for Division Meetings may be found on the Division websites.
The AAS 221st Meeting was held 6-10 January 2013 at the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center, 300 E. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90802.
