Proposal Preparation in Three Steps:

  1. 1. DECIDE ON YOUR PROPOSAL TYPE

    1. Proposal Types: Review this Call for Proposals and the information regarding the two (2) proposal submission types – Organized Panel sessions and Roundtables submissions.

    2. Organized Panels are Pre-organized Sessions with three to five paper presentations and a session chair and/or discussant to facilitate a discussion of the papers presented.

      Roundtables are a discussion format centered around a particular topic. This is not a formal paper presentation session. Rather, the session should aim at stimulating interaction, debate, and discussion among roundtable participants and those in attendance.

      INDIVIDUAL PAPER PROPOSALS ARE NOT ACCEPTED FOR THIS CONFERENCE.

    3. Review the requirements of each proposal type, including the minimum/maximum number of participants, abstract word counts, etc.
    4. Review the AAS diversity and inclusion submission guidelines to ensure your preparations and final submitted proposal meet the AAS conference requirements.
