25th Meeting of the NASA Small Bodies Assessment Group
June 7–8, 2021
This meeting is the second of SBAG’s two yearly meetings. After monitoring the developments of the COVID-19 pandemic closely, the SBAG steering committee made the decision to deliver this meeting virtually. The agenda includes an overview of NASA’s missions involving small bodies, various presentations from NASA Headquarters managers, early career science talks, and community forums. A findings report from the meeting will be compiled and presented to NASA Headquarters.
Registration fees are not being collected for this virtual meeting, but registration is required for communication and planning purposes. To continue receiving e-mail updates about this meeting, including virtual access information, complete the electronic registration form.
Registered attendees will receive an e-mail prior to the meeting from Houston Meeting Info with virtual connection information. The deadline to register is June 2, 2021.
SBAG Early Career Opportunities
We have two opportunities at this upcoming SBAG meeting specifically for the early career small body community:
Invited early-career speakers: Three early-career researchers have been invited to give 15-minute talks on June 7.
Lightning talks: We will provide time on the agenda for early-career scientists and engineers attending the meeting to introduce themselves and their research to the community. The talks will be approximately 3 minutes each, with the exact length depending on the number of presenters. If you are interested in giving a lightning talk, please email the Early-Career Secretary, Terik Daly (Terik.Daly@jhuapl.edu), by 5:00 p.m. EDT on May 7, 2021. Attach a single slide, in PDF format, with your name, affiliation, and a figure or two that highlight your research. We encourage presenters from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences.
