As a reminder, the next SBAG meeting will be January 14th-16th at the Pasadena Hilton in Pasadena, California.
We have two opportunities at the upcoming SBAG meeting in January specifically aimed at the early career small body community:
Early career travel support: With funding from NASA, we are planning to offer limited U.S. travel support for early career scientists to participate in the SBAG 22 meeting, to be held in the Pasadena Hilton on January 14-16th 2020. Interested undergraduate students, graduate students, postdocs, and other early career scientists (within 5 years of PhD/MS/BS) should submit a letter and a CV to SBAG Early Career Secretarys Hannah Susorney (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Terik Daly (Terik.Daly@jhuapl.edu) by COB (5 pm Eastern time) November 15th, 2019. 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 the SBAG. The letter and CV should be combined into a single PDF document for submission by e-mail attachment. Recipients of NASA travel support will be expected to give a short presentation (~10-15 minutes) of their SBAG-relevant work at the SBAG 22 meeting.
Lightning Talks: We are providing time on the agenda for early-career scientists and engineers present at the meeting to introduce themselves and their research to the community. The talks will be 3 minutes each. If you are interested in giving a lightning talk, please contact the early-career secretary Hannah Susorney (email@example.com) and Terik Daly (Terik.Daly@jhuapl.edu) two weeks before the meeting.
