You are Invited!

The aim of this meeting is to provide a space for astronomers in the DC/MD/VA area, especially graduate students, to present their work and facilitate networking and interaction between the institutions.

Graduate students are invited to submit abstracts to present their research in the form of both talks and posters. The format for presentations will be 15 minutes talks with 5 minutes for questions, and there will 3 sessions for viewing posters. The conference will be a day long. When selecting talks, we will give preference to senior graduate students from external institutions that represent a variety of fields of research.
