NAM 2020: Call for session proposals

December 1, 2019, from Natasha Jeffrey

Dear all

The Royal Astronomical Society’s 2020 National Astronomy Meeting will be held at the University of Bath from Sunday 12th July to Friday 17th July, alongside the 200th anniversary of the Royal Astronomical Society (RAS200).

We now invite proposals for sessions to be held at NAM2020, and encourage members of the UK’s astronomy community from all levels of seniority to apply, including the UK Solar Physics (UKSP), Magnetosphere Ionosphere and Solar-Terrestrial (MIST) and the geophysics communities. Proposals are welcome for sessions and workshops covering all aspects of NAM, UKSP, and MIST science, including cross-discipline sessions. As well as hosting parallel sessions of varying duration, the conference will have space for collaborative meetings, half-day workshops and lunch sessions.

We are keen to raise the profile of public engagement, diversity, and inclusion at NAM2020, and encourage proposals where engagement and diversity are embedded into the science content, in addition to dedicated sessions. We will also have a public-facing programme of activities as part of RAS200 celebrations, and applications to contribute to this programme are welcome.

For more details and to access the online submission form please follow the link here

The deadline for submitting parallel session proposals is Friday 17th Jan 2020 at 17:30 UTC.

Best wishes,

Dr Patricia Schady
on behalf of the NAM2020 LOC
