American Society for Gravitational and Space Research (ASGSR) – Call for Abstracts – Deadline August 31, 2012

The American Society for Gravitational and Space Research (ASGSR) has extended its Call for Abstracts to August 31, 2012. To submit an ASGSR abstract on-line go to

The meeting will take place November 28th – December 2, 2012 in New Orleans, Louisiana at the Westin New Orleans Canal Place. The Life and Physical Sciences community will meet to discuss gravitational and space research in physical phenomena and biological sciences. Joint symposia are planned to discuss interfaces between biological and physical sciences, space health issues from the flight surgeon’s perspective, and gravity related issues in life support systems. A draft program can be found at ASGSR 2012 Meeting Program

Students are encouraged to submit. All accepted abstracts from students would be presented as posters. The student poster session and competition is planned for Saturday, December 1, 2012. Student poster competition awards will be presented at the Saturday night banquet for the best posters, as judged by a panel of scientists. Students will participate in the competition by presenting their work during scheduled poster sessions. Students can request travel assistance by checking the box on the abstract submittal form.

Accepted abstracts will be compiled by topic and published in the meeting program distributed at the meeting. After the conference, extended abstracts and papers can be submitted for publication to the peer-reviewed ASGSR journal.
