Attendees arriving early to the 231st AAS meeting in Washington, DC, next month are invited to attend the NSF Astronomy and Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellowship Symposium. The symposium occurs once a year and serves as an opportunity for the NSF AAPFs to interact and learn about each others' groundbreaking scientific and education efforts.

The symposium runs across two days: Sunday, 7 January, 1:00 to 5:30 pm, and Monday, 8 January, 9:00 am to 5:30 pm, in Potomac Ballroom 3 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center.

Notably, the entire event is free and open to all meeting attendees and will feature a number of activities relevant to the broader astronomical community. There will be selected talks by fellows on their current research and broader impact efforts; career advice from a panel consisting of three former NSF AAPFs who later earned NSF CAREER awards; and talks by our two keynote speakers: Dr. Lucianne Walkowicz, the Blumberg Chair of Astrobiology at the Library of Congress; and Dr. Alex Young, Associate Director for Science in the Heliophysics Science Division of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.

Refreshments will be provided. For a full schedule, including titles and abstracts for each talk as well as biographies for each of the fellows, see Please join us!
