236th Meeting of the American Astronomical Society - Virtual
June 1 - June 3
The 236th meeting has gone fully virtual! Join the global astronomy community for this dynamic online experience happening 1-3 June.
In response to the coronavirus outbreak and the increasing steps being taken worldwide to limit the spread, the AAS Board of Trustees has decided to convert the 236th AAS meeting — originally scheduled 31 May to 4 June in Madison, Wisconsin — to a fully virtual conference, with both synchronous (real-time) and asynchronous ways to participate.
The virtual meeting’s synchronous content will be presented Monday-Wednesday, 1-3 June 2020, and will include plenary talks, parallel oral sessions, iPosters (enhanced with a chat feature that allows live dialog with the presenter), iPoster-Plus sessions, press conferences, a virtual exhibit hall, and opportunities for small-group networking. All talks will be recorded for later access and, as usual, iPosters will be available shortly before, during, and after the meeting. Please note that splinter meetings will not be included in the online conference. We’ll share more details soon, including our plans for asynchronous participation.
