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 http://asgsr.org/index.php/2012-asgsr-call-for-abstracts.html

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.

Experiencing the First Annual ISS Research and Development Conference

Experiencing the First Annual ISS Research and Development Conference.

In today’s NASA “A Lab Aloft” Blog, guest blogger Emily White talks about the first annual ISS Research and Development Conference held in June.  The overarching theme for the conference seems to have been utilization.

White focuses on the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) team’s activities at the conference.

Mars Rover Curiosity Landing Educator Conference at JPL – August 3-5, 2012

Curiosity Rover

Bring “Curiosity” Into Your Classroom! Educator conference at JPL Aug.3-5, 2012.

Bring “Curiosity” Into Your Classroom!

Join in the historic landing of NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity at Gale Crater Aug.3-5, 2012, at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. Bring the excitement of Mars exploration to your classroom with standards-aligned, STEM-based, hands-on activities and take home image-rich learning materials. Mission team members will share their stories, and you can see mission control, rover test beds and more. Then, view Curiosity’s anticipated landing at 10:31 p.m., Aug. 5.

Call for Abstracts – American Society for Gravitational and Space Research Conference – Deadline August 15, 2012

AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR GRAVITATIONAL AND SPACE RESEARCH
NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA
NOVEMBER 28th – DECEMBER 2nd, 2012

The American Society For Gravitational And Space Research (ASGSR) is pleased to announce the 28th annual meeting and Call for Abstracts for the American Society for Gravitational and Space Research. The meeting will take place November 28th – December 2nd, 2012 in New Orleans, Louisiana at the Westin New Orleans Canal Place.

Make plans to join an international community of scientists and technologists to discuss gravitational and space research. We anticipate a program of unusual breadth, variety and integration with emphasis on space research and technology in physical phenomena and biological sciences. Symposiums 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. Along with technical sessions on science and technology, the Center for the Advancement of Space (CASIS) will conduct an informative workshop scheduled for Wednesday, November 28, 2012.

Students are welcome to submit an abstract and attend the conference at reduced rates. A student poster competition (cash awards) will be held Saturday, December 1, 2012.

Satellites & Education Conference XXV – August 9-11, 2012

Join the Satellite Educators Association for an education conference being held Aug. 9-11, 2012, in Los Angeles, Calif. The annual conference is for educators interested in discovering ways to use satellites and related technologies in the classroom. Participants learn ways to help students appreciate and understand the complex interrelationships among science, technology, individuals, societies and the environment. Conference attendees learn to develop and apply inquiry and technology skills to study authentic questions and problems.

In conjunction with this year’s conference, a two-day training session for the GLOBE program will take place Aug. 10-11.

The conference is hosted by California State University, Los Angeles. The event is sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NASA, Aerospace Institute, Boeing, Raytheon, SpaceX, Lockheed-Martin, Sally Ride Science Festivals, Traveling Space Museum, Centers for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence’s West location and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
