ASP 129th Annual Meeting

The Astronomical Society of the Pacific (ASP) presents a STEM Outreach Conference:

Beyond the Eclipse:
Engaging Diverse and Underserved Communities in Astronomy and STEM

December 5-8, 2017
St. Louis, Missouri
Moonrise Hotel

The Astronomical Society of the Pacific (ASP) is pleased to announce its 129th Annual Meeting will be another in its series of STEM outreach conferences, with a special emphasis on working with and engaging diverse and underserved communities.

This ASP 2017 conference will help us all look “beyond the 2017 eclipse” as a follow-up to last year’s conference, which focused on how best to engage all underserved communities in the 2017 solar eclipse. Join us four months after the August eclipse to share outreach efforts that worked best and discuss what could be improved, not just for future eclipses, but to inform other astronomy education and outreach activities striving to reach diverse audiences (e.g. science festivals, urban/rural STEM initiatives, etc.).

The invitation is open for all to participate in this conference even if you were unable to attend last year.

Space is limited for this conference. There will be invited and contributed presentations, with a select number of workshops, talks, panels, and posters.
