“Preparing Your #AAS2021 Proposal” will introduce the AAS Annual Conference Call for Proposals (CFP) and de-mystify this often intimidating process. AAS 2021 Program Committee Chair Brian Hatcher, past Program Committee member Miriam Kingsberg Kadia, and AAS Conference Manager Robyn Jones will provide viewers with an overview of submission guidelines and the CFP portal, explain the different types of proposals, discuss how the Program Committee carries out its work, and respond to audience questions. This Digital Dialogue is open to all (both AAS Members and non-members), but may be especially helpful for those who have not previously submitted a proposal to the Annual Conference.
