Nominations Requested for Plenary Speakers at AAS Meetings

One of the central features of the AAS Summer and Winter Meetings is their plenary talks spanning the full breadth of astrophysics. Some plenaries are given by prize winners from the AAS and other organizations, while other speakers are selected by the AAS Vice Presidents. Most plenary talks present science content, but talks on the state of the profession, demographics, and societal issues of relevance to the astronomical community are also regularly scheduled.

The AAS VPs solicit nominations from the community for potential plenary speakers and/or topics. They seek dynamic speakers who can deliver engaging, visual-rich presentations to a general audience of astronomers, on topics that are of broad interest to the community. Candidate speakers from under-represented groups and institutions, and from a range of career stages, are especially welcome. Self-nominations are accepted.
