Invitation to DC/MD/VA Summer Astrophysics Meeting at UMD-CP

Summer Astrophysics Meeting at UMD-CP

Summer Astrophysics Meeting at UMD-CP


With such a dense collection of astronomy research institutions in the area, we would like to facilitate networking and interaction between the institutions. Students are invited to submit abstracts to present their research in the form of both talks and posters. The format for presentations will be 15 minutes talks with 5 minutes for questions, and there will 2 sessions for viewing posters. The conference will be a day long event with a limited number of talks to allow ample time for interaction and discussion. When selecting talks, we will give preference to senior graduate students from external institutions that represent a variety of fields of research.

Abstract and registration deadlines are May 31, 2013. Attached is a flyer for the conference. A high resolution version may be obtained at:
