2010 MEETING OF THE ASTRONOMICAL SOCIETY OF THE PACIFIC: ACCEPTING REGISTRATIONS AND ABSTRACT SUBMISSIONS

(Boulder, Colo.; July 31-August 4, 2010; Abstracts due April 23; Discount registration through April 30)

This meeting, being held on the scenic University of Colorado campus in Boulder from July 31 to August 4, brings together, for the first time, two hands-on symposia that the ASP has been sponsoring:

–Cosmos in the Classroom: Teaching Introductory Astronomy and Planetary Science to Non-science Majors
–Earth and Space Science: Making Connections in Education and Public Outreach.

In addition, there will be a weekend workshop on teaching astronomy for teachers in grades 3-12 and those who work with them. Abstracts are welcome for a number of different types of contributions to the two symposia, including poster papers, one-hour hands-on workshops, and special interest group discussions.  Full instructions are available on the meeting Web site.

Inexpensive hotel accommodations and campus residence halls have been arranged to keep meeting costs as low as possible. Some scholarships are available for astronomy instructors from community colleges and other colleges where travel budgets are limited or non-existent.

Register by April 30 to for a discounted registration rate. ASP encourages participants to register early and make vacation plans around this meeting in one of the most beautiful spots in the U.S. For more information, to register or submit an abstract visit: http://www.astrosociety.org/2010meeting.
