Tuesday, May 16, 2017 - 14:04

Save the date! The 49th meeting of the AAS Division for Planetary Sciences will take place 15-20 October 2017 in Provo, Utah. Registration and hotel information will be available later this summer, but workshop proposals are being accepted and abstract submission is now open.

49th DPS Meeting

If you are interested in hosting a workshop during the DPS meeting and having that meeting included on the meeting registration form, submit your proposal by Wednesday, 24 May. All other workshop proposals are due by 28 August. Learn more about the types of workshops and deadlines.

Submit your oral or poster abstract by 9:00 pm ET on Wednesday, 26 July, to be added to the DPS 49 meeting program. Abstracts submitted after 26 July but before the late deadline of 31 August will be scheduled as posters and will be on display throughout the meeting. Learn more on the Abstract Information page.

The DPS is considering offering an exciting new way to present your poster at the upcoming meeting in Provo: interactive, multimedia iPosters. With the iPoster system, you'll be able to create an interactive presentation that includes high-resolution images, high-definition videos, narration, interviews, viewer surveys, and more. You can add as much text and media content as you need to present your research with all the detail it deserves. Learn more about iPosters and if you're interested, be sure to select that option when submitting your abstract.

Travel and Dependent Care Grants
A limited number of Hartmann Student Travel Grants are available to assist member participation in the upcoming DPS meeting. Travel grants are primarily intended for students, but post-doctoral scientists without other means of support will also be considered. Travel grants rarely exceed a few hundred dollars and are intended to provide a supplement that makes the difference between being able to attend the annual meeting or not. The Hartmann Travel Grant application deadline is Friday, 7 July, for the 2017 DPS meeting. Learn more and apply for a travel grant.

The DPS's Susan Niebur Professional Development Fund provides financial assistance to qualifying members in order to facilitate their meeting attendance by offsetting costs for child care, elder care, spousal care, etc. at the meeting location or at home during the DPS conference. Apply for a Dependent Care Grant by 15 September to be considered.

Additional information will be posted to the meeting website as it becomes available. See you in Provo!
