AOU/COS meeting dates: 13-17 Aug 2013.We are accepting proposals for symposia.
Symposia proposals should include: (1) title of symposium, (2) a 2-5 sentence rationale for the symposium's topic, (3) names, contact information, and presentation topics of presenting speakers and 1-2 alternate speakers, and (4) requested length of symposium (whole day or half day). Before submitting the proposal, organizers are strongly encouraged to contact potential participants and receive at least tentative commitments from them to attend. Symposia are allowed 15 or 30 min for presentations. Symposium presenters and organizers are expected to pay registration fees and travel expenses; the AOU cannot provide financial assistance. We encourage symposium and workshop organizers to seek external funds to support participants' expenses. The deadline for submission of symposium and workshop proposals is Friday, 16 November 2012. Please submit proposals to PETER LOWTHER. Photo by J. Engel
