NAM2023 Session Abstracts open

Dear Colleague

The Royal Astronomical Society’s 2023 National Astronomy Meeting (NAM 2023) will be held at Cardiff University from Monday 3rd July to Friday 7th July. In addition to the UK’s astronomy community, the meeting includes the UK Solar Physics (UKSP) community, and participation from the Magnetosphere Ionosphere and Solar-Terrestrial (MIST) community.

The scientific and local organising committee are delighted to announce the session program for NAM2023 is now live – as is abstract submission. The selected sessions span the full gamut of research conducted in the UK, from the processes ongoing in the sun, to the formation of stars, galaxies and the universe itself. Selected sessions also cover the science-art connection, professional skills, sustainability, engagement, diversity and inclusion. We encourage members of the Astronomy, UKSP and MIST community from all levels of seniority to apply to present talks and posters as part of these sessions.

NAM 2023 will be a hybrid meeting, in which a large number of participants attend in person, but with the opportunity for remote participation for additional delegates. The health and safety of NAM 2023 delegates is of the utmost importance to us, and we will be monitoring ongoing global developments due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The deadline for submitting abstracts is Monday 24th April 2023 at 13:00 UTC.
