DPS 49 Registration Deadline Approaching

The AAS Division for Planetary Sciences (DPS) is headed to Provo, Utah, 15-20 October for the 49th DPS meeting. Join us for what is sure to be an exciting week of sharing science, connecting with colleagues, and learning the latest from the full breadth of the planetary science field.

49th DPS Meeting

Meeting registration is open and the early registration deadline is quickly approaching! Register by 31 July to avoid higher rates. Find all of the details on the Registration page. Don't forget to take a look at the workshops and events happening during the meeting, too — some require advance registration.

Late abstract submission will open Monday, 31 July. Submit your poster abstract by 9:00 pm on 31 August to be added to the meeting program. Everything you need to know to submit your abstract is available on the Abstract Information page. If you’re submitting a poster abstract, consider presenting an iPoster instead of a traditional poster to include high-res images, videos, narration, and more.

The AAS has a block of rooms at the Provo Marriott Hotel available for meeting attendees. Hotel reservations must be made by 20 September to ensure the group rate. Check out the Travel & Lodging page for more information.

The DPS Susan Niebur Professional Development Fund provides financial assistance to qualifying members in order to facilitate their meeting attendance by offsetting costs for dependent care at the meeting location or at home during the DPS meeting. Dependent Care Grant applications are due 15 September.

If you’re interested in hosting a workshop during the DPS meeting, be sure to submit your proposal by 28 August.
