Submit Your #AAS239 Session Proposals!

The AAS Executive Office and Vice-Presidents are eager to receive meeting proposals:

  • Special Sessions due 16 June
  • Town Halls due 16 June
  • Workshops due 9 August
  • Splinter Meetings due 7 September

Due to cost constraints as we transition to a future hybrid meeting environment, we are not yet able to offer remote participation for speakers at AAS 239 in concurrent special sessions, contributed oral sessions, iPoster+ sessions, workshops, or splinter meetings. All speakers in these sessions/workshops/splinters will need to be physically present in Salt Lake City. The policy for town halls will be determined on a case by case basis. We will revisit this policy as we move forward to conferences beyond AAS 239.

Nominate a Plenary Speaker for #AAS239

Plenary talks at AAS meetings span the breadth of the astronomical sciences. Some are given by prizewinners, while others are selected by the AAS VPs. Most plenaries present science content, but others cover the state of the profession and other issues relevant to the community.

The AAS VPs solicit plenary nominations. They seek engaging speakers with compelling results for talks targeted to a general audience of astronomers and college/university students. Candidates from under-represented groups and institutions are especially welcome. Self-nominations are encouraged. Nominate a Plenary Speaker
