Session Proposal Information and Deadlines
Town Halls are intended for federal agencies, national observatories, and major current and future missions and facilities to present policy information and to solicit feedback from their user communities.
Special Sessions are intended for observatories, missions, and facilities to present and discuss scientific results and plans, and for discussion of education and state-of-the-profession topics. They typically feature multiple speakers.
Future missions and facilities can utilize exhibits, Workshops, Splinter Meetings, or websites to provide information to the community.
All session organizers must be active Full Members of the AAS at the time of the conference.
Session Cancellations: If for any reason you need to cancel your Town Hall, Workshop, Special Session or Splinter Meeting, please do so by Thursday, 12 May 2022. For additional information regarding session cancellations, please contact AAS Meetings Services.
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 240 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 Pasadena. 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 240.
The 240th meeting of the AAS will be held 12–16 June 2022, at the Pasadena Convention Center, Pasadena, California.
