AAS Winter Meeting Abstract Submission Is Open!
The AAS winter meeting is about five months away and preparations are well under way. See what we’re planning and join your colleagues at the 231st AAS meeting 8-12 January 2018 in Washington, DC. (Note that this year’s winter meeting will take place Monday-Friday instead of the usual Sunday-Thursday.)
Abstracts Now Being Accepted
Abstract submission for the 231st AAS meeting is now open! Submit your abstract for an oral or poster presentation in one of over 50 topical categories by 3 October at 9:00 pm ET to join the meeting program. If you miss that deadline, you can submit a poster abstract through the late deadline of 5 December. Details are available on the Abstract Information page.
Like the last summer meeting in Austin, AAS 231 will include iPosters. Consider presenting an iPoster instead of a traditional poster for the option to include high-res images, videos, narration, and more.
Registration and Housing Opening Soon
Stay tuned, meeting registration and the hotel block will open near the end of August.
