We are excited to post the schedule for ASTR’s 60th Anniversary conference this November 3-6 in Minneapolis. The schedule includes a fantastic array of working sessions, curated panels, plenary speakers, graduate student events, and other programming that explores the conference theme “Trans-” from multiple perspectives. The Program Chairs will continue to update this schedule with other events and panels as they are finalized. You can find the 2016 conference schedule here.
We are putting the finishing touches on the registration form and will officially open conference registration in mid-August. However, you can get a jump on planning by reserving your hotel room at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center here. To reserve a room via phone, please use the following dedicated Group Reservations phone numbers to access special block rates.
Even as we prepare for the 2016 conference, I want to remind you that we are now accepting proposals from ASTR members who wish to organize the 2018 conference in San Diego. Applications for 2018 Program Chair(s) are due on September 16th. Information about the proposal selection process is available here.
In the coming weeks you will receive more emails about our upcoming conference in Minneapolis. Until then, we hope you will review the current schedule and begin planning your travel.
The Program Chairs and I look forward to seeing you in November to celebrate ASTR’s 60th year and the exciting scholarship of our members.
