The PhysCon 2022 App will be sponsored by the American Astronomical Society.
The American Astronomical Society (AAS), established in 1899 and based in Washington, DC, is the major organization of professional astronomers in North America. Its membership of about 8,000 also includes physicists, mathematicians, geologists, engineers, and others whose research and educational interests lie within the broad spectrum of subjects comprising contemporary astronomy.
The mission of the AAS is to enhance and share humanity’s scientific understanding of the universe, which it achieves through publishing, meeting organization, education and outreach, policy advocacy, training and professional development, and the awarding of prestigious annual prizes.
In partnership with Institute of Physics (IOP) Publishing, the AAS publishes two of the leading peer-reviewed journals in the field: the Astronomical Journal (AJ) and the Astrophysical Journal (ApJ). The Society also produces AAS Nova, a website featuring research highlights from its journals; partners with the Astrobites daily blog in which graduate students summarize astro-ph preprints in a format accessible to undergraduates; and manages the WorldWide Telescope (WWT) project.
The Society also has six topical divisions: Division on Dynamical Astronomy (DDA), Division for Planetary Sciences (DPS), High Energy Astrophysics Division (HEAD), Historical Astronomy Division (HAD), Laboratory Astrophysics Division (LAD), and Solar Physics Division (SPD).
