The NSF AAPF program supports young scientists who carry out an integrated program of independent research and education/public outreach. During this annual symposium, the Fellows gather to give talks on their current research and outreach projects. Several outside speakers are also invited to give keynote talks and participate in discussion panels on a range of topics such as exploring non traditional outreach methods, addressing the next big problems in astronomy, and exploring alternative careers outside of academia. This meeting provides an opportunity for the current, past, and prospective Fellows to meet and discuss their work with members of the community, learn from each other's experiences, and to foster new collaborations.
All members of the astronomical community are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Registration is limited to 50 participants. Lunch will be provided to participants who register before November 1, 2016.
