The SBAG 14 meeting is scheduled for January 27-29, 2016 in Pasadena, California. Logistical details for the specific location are still in the process of being finalized, and we anticipate having a draft agenda on the SBAG website in early October (http://www.lpi.usra.edu/sbag/).
We are planning to offer limited U.S. travel support for early career scientists to participate in the SBAG 14 meeting. Interested graduate students, postdocs, and other early career scientists (within 3 years of PhD/MS/BS) should submit a letter and a CV to SBAG Early Career Secretary Angela Stickle (angela.stickle at jhuapl.edu) by October 21, 2015. Included in the letter, which must not exceed 2 pages, should be a demonstration of financial need and an explanation of how the applicant’s work relates to the purposes of SBAG. The letter and CV should be combined into a single PDF document for submission by e-mail attachment. Recipients of travel support will be expected to give a short presentation of their SBAG-relevant work at the SBAG 14 meeting.
We are very excited for early-career participation in SBAG. Please pass this opportunity on to appropriate individuals.
