We had an amazing 1st virtual conference last year (ASP2020), and by popular demand, we're offering another online conference. If you missed ASP2020, you won’t want to miss this one, and if you were with us last year, you know you'll want to reconvene with your colleagues you met from around the world, update folks on what you've been working on, and share & learn about best practices, innovative ideas, lessons learned, research findings, and evaluation results from our global community.  

We invite scientists, college instructors, K-12 educators, science communicators, and public engagement professionals in astronomy and related fields to submit abstracts and join us all for ASP2021: a virtual conference to move toward a better future. Whether you teach astronomy to students, engage the public in astronomy live or online, or design astronomy learning experiences, the virtual 133rd Annual Meeting of the ASP can’t be missed!  

More information on the conference can be found on the ASP2021 web page.
