Conference Proceedings Information for Presenters

ASP2020: A Virtual Conference


Author Guidelines

The ASP is publishing ASP2020 - Embracing the Future: Astronomy Education and Public Engagement proceedings through the ASP Conference Series (ASPCS) as it has in past years, to provide a record of the conference and a ready reference for both those attending and those unable to attend. It also provides a publishing opportunity to all those who successfully submitted an abstract and made a presentation or led a session at the Virtual Conference. 

Paper submission deadline has been extended through February 15, 2021.

Further author information is available on the ASPCS author information website, along with templates and LaTeX macros. We've also posted an informational video you may find helpful. *Important note - as of February 1, the links to the ASPCS website are currently undergoing access challenges. We expect website access to resume early February.
