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 AAS will now endorse regional meetings — conferences organized for the benefit of clearly defined geographical areas — that meet a few simple rules designed to support and foster astronomical discourse.
On 3 May more than 60 astronomers and students from Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, and West Virginia met for the first AAS Regional Meeting and found that the whole was greater than the sum of its parts.

Much of the advice can be useful for people at all levels of their career as well.
We've prepared an interactive map showing many of the locations described below, as well as the hotels and locations of other conference events.
