On 8-9 October, in Washington, DC, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will host a focus session under the auspices of the Committee of Astronomy and Astrophysics to engage early-career astronomers and astrophysicists in the decadal survey planning and input process.

At this focus session senior graduate students, postdocs, and early tenure-track and academic equivalents will (1) acquire a thorough understanding of the astronomy and astrophysics decadal survey process and its context, and (2) provide direct input to the Astro2020 survey concerning the structure, process, and content of a decadal survey, the state of the profession, and the future of astronomy and astrophysics.

To apply and for further information visit the National Academies website. The application deadline is 16 July 2018.
