The AAS seeks session proposals for the 223rd AAS meeting in Washington, DC, 5-9 January 2014. We welcome proposals on both broad and narrow topics that will appeal to large and small groups.
Meetings Tag Definition: Relates to the overall Meetings program and everything produced by the Meetings Department. Additional meeting specific tags (e.g. aas222) are used to categorize items for individual meetings.
- Items produced by other departments for a specific meeting do not contain the general Meetings tag. They are categoriezed within their subject area (e.g. Press, Policy, Public Outreach) plus they contain the specific meeting tag (e.g. aas222).
- Members may subscribe to the main Meetings category to receive notifications for ALL meetings OR they may subscribe to individual meetings using the specific meeting number tags.
The abstract deadline for the Long Beach meeting is today at 9:00pm ET. You may have notice some slowness today because of the amount of traffic to the AAS website but it should be more responsive now. We apologize for any inconvenience.
