September 2021 Events in Astronomical Science Policy
Kelsie Krafton US Department of Energy
This is the monthly event roundup for the AAS Policy Blog, in which we share a list of upcoming astronomical science policy events. Examples include congressional hearings, advisory-committee meetings, Capitol Hill briefings, policy forums, think-tank symposia, networking opportunities, and/or lectures. Most of these events are public and occur here in Washington, DC. Many are also live streamed. I will try to note in the event listing if advance registration for in-person attendance is required (either for security or capacity reasons).
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many events are going virtual as organizations adapt to the new normal. We hope you take advantage of the increased accessibility of virtual events.
Other relevant policy event calendars:
- Space Policy Online Event Calendar, for all things space, including civil, commercial, and defense
- American Institute of Physics FYI This Week, for recaps and events happening in physical sciences policy
Some events are announced with less than a month’s advance notice, and we will update this post whenever we have something new to add. Please email us if you have a correction or an event that you think should be added to this list.
