The Society's thoughts are with everyone affected by hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, and we know that those affected have more important matters to focus on right now than registration deadlines for the AAS winter meeting. We will therefore extend the early registration deadline and rate to 9 November for meeting attendees from the greater Houston area, South Florida, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and the Caribbean. Please use the special registration form to register at the early registration rate if you are from one of those affected areas.

Registration Fees

Note: All workshop organizers, moderators, and attendees must be registered to attend the AAS meeting at which the workshop is occurring. Those attending a workshop only and not the rest of the AAS meeting will be charged a one-day registration fee in addition to the individual workshop fee.

All fees listed in USD.
