The Program Committee is also accepting submissions for the second José Esteban Muñoz Targeted Research Working Session. These competitive, funded, three-year working sessions aim to support, promote, and feature the production of research by and about people of color. You can find a description of this initiative, as well as the proposal form, here: ASTR’S JOSÉ ESTEBAN MUÑOZ GRANT
The Program Chairs and I encourage you to think creatively about how your work connects with this year’s theme and to submit a proposal by the February 1st deadline.
We look forward to seeing you in Atlanta in November.
