Registration Instructions

Two Forms: We are using two on-line forms for the meeting:

a. A registration form, which lets you just register one or more people for the meeting

b. An abstracts form that allows you to submit an abstract separately from registering for the meeting (you can use this form more than once if you are submitting two abstracts)

E-mail Confirmation: You will receive a confirmation of your registration, as well as follow-up email notifications pertinent to the meeting. Please be sure to give us an email address that will work for you in the spring and in the summer. Your email confirmation will serve as your receipt for meeting registration expenses.

REMINDER: Each time you submit a form for our meeting, you will receive a unique confirmation letter, a unique confirmation code, and new registrant ID. At the present time, the system is not able to link together different forms submitted by the same person. This means that if any of your information (such as e-mail or address) changes between now and the meeting, you will need to change the record for all forms you submitted — your conference registration and the registration of each abstract.

Multiple Registrants: You may sign up more than one registrant at a time but make sure you have all of their information and selections ready prior to filling in the form

Payment: For your convenience, there are two payment options:

  • Credit card using the secure online registration/payment system.
  • Check or money order — via postal mail accompanied by a printout of the confirmation email you receive after submitting your online registration. Your check or money order must be received by July 5 for regular registration. For the Super Early Bird and Early Bird rate your check or money order must be received by the deadine for that rate in order to receive the reduced rate.

We apologize that we can not accept purchase orders as a payment method for this meeting or the associated events.

ASP Membership:

If you are a current ASP member, please indicate this on the registration form in order to benefit from the reduced member rate.

You are invited to become a member of the ASP in order to receive the member rate for registration. ASP membership supports our mission to advance science literacy through astronomy for the benefit of tomorrow’s science, technology and academic leaders.

ASP Annual Awards Banquet

You are invited to celebrate astronomy’s best and brightest at the ASP’s Annual Awards Banquet on Tuesday evening, August 5. Spouses and guests are also welcome. Award recipients are acknowledged for their astronomical research, education and outreach in 2013. You may use the registration form to purchase Award Banquet tickets and indicate your entrée selection. The cost is $65 per person, and this includes hosted wine, beer, and soft drinks during the reception and dinner.


The ASP plans to publish the proceedings of the EPO Conference and Cosmos in the Classroom as part of the ASP’s conference series. A copy of the proceedings will be sent to every conference participant after the event.
