AAS Announces New Topical Conference Series
The AAS is pleased to announce a new Topical Conference Series that will begin in late July and August of 2013, with proposals for possible conferences due June 1, 2012. The AAS vice presidents will competitively select three proposals for conferences in 2013 and may select more for future years.
The AAS Topical Conference Series, or AASTCS, (pronounced "aztecs"), will be composed of cutting-edge topical meetings representing frontier research in astronomy and astrophysics, planetary science, heliophysics or related scientific areas and provide an enjoyable venue to interact at depth with colleagues and fellow researchers. Attractive locations will be a feature of these conferences and we anticipate the first conferences will be held in a comfortable mountain setting with ample opportunity for recreation outside of the set meeting times.
See AASTCS page for further details.
The AAS vice-presidents name a special invited lecturer to kick off each AAS meeting with a presentation on recent research of great importance. The Kavli Foundation's generous support covers the lecturer's travel expenses and as well as promotional expenses.
Please fill out the form with your confirmed speakers only. You must submit the first and last name, affiliation, and e-mail of each speaker. Speakers that do not have an affiliation or email listed will not be processed.
