NAM 2022: Call for Session ProposalsOctober 12, 2021, from Natasha Jeffrey
The Royal Astronomical Society’s 2022 National Astronomy Meeting (NAM 2022) will be held at the University of Warwick from Monday 11th July to Friday 15th July. In addition to the UK’s astronomy community, the meeting includes the UK Solar Physics (UKSP), and the Magnetosphere Ionosphere and Solar-Terrestrial (MIST) communities.
We invite proposals for sessions to be held at NAM 2022, and encourage members of the Astronomy, UKSP and MIST community from all levels of seniority to apply for specialist and cross-disciplinary scientific presentation and discussion sessions. As well as hosting parallel sessions of varying duration, the conference may host collaborative meetings, workshops and lunch sessions. The applicants of any successful proposals will be expected to take on the role of scientific organisers of the session. We encourage proposals where engagement and diversity are embedded into the science content, in addition to dedicated sessions on public engagement, diversity, and inclusion.
We are currently planning for a hybrid meeting, in which a large number of participants attend in person, but with opportunity for remote participation for additional delegates. Session conveners should consider any implication for their proposals. The health and safety of NAM 2022 delegates is of the utmost importance to us, and we will be monitoring ongoing global developments due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Proposals should be submitted on-line here.
The deadline for submitting proposals for sessions is Tuesday 14th Dec 2021 at 17:30 UTC.
