“hybrid” AAS 2021; reminder Aug 4 deadline

Dear PSG Folks,  Just a quick reminder that August 4 is the deadline for panel and individual paper proposals for AAS 2021, and a clarification that if you can not attend the conference in person in Seattle, you can plan to attend and present virtuallyPlease see the AAS’s conference FAQs, which describes both in-person and virtual presentation formats.  As I’d noted in an earlier message: 

  • If you want to circulate a panel idea here to find others to join, please e-mail me: mcthomas@ucsc.edu and I’ll circulate your message here.  
  • Please note that unlike prior years, there will be no panel sponsorship as part of the application process.  After the AAS program committee has notified panel organizers about the status of their proposals, I’ll circulate an invitation to request PSG sponsorship.  (This new process is the result of a decision by the AAS conference program committee.)  

Let me know if you have any questions at all; I’ll do my best to answer them or find someone else who can.  –Megan Thomas, PSG Chair
