Going to conferences and giving talks and posters as a new student, especially for your first time, can seem like an overwhelming experience. We've included some links here with valuable information for first-time conference attendees, as well as information on how to prepare and give a good talk or poster. Much of the advice can be useful for people at all levels of their career as well.
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.
