The Society for Astronomical Sciences will hold its 38th annual Symposium on May 30-31-June1, 2019 in Ontario, California.
--> Registration will open in December, 2018 <--


The purpose of the SAS Symposium is to encourage research using small-telescope observations and amateur-professional collaborations in astronomy.  Topics of interest include asteroids, solar system objects, exoplanets, variable stars, novae and supernovae, and related topics such as instrument design and characterization, and data analysis methods.  Everyone with an interest in small-telescope research is welcome -- amateur astronomers, students, and professional astronomers.  If you want to see how small-telescope observations and measurements are contributing to astronomical science, learn more about photometry, astrometry, spectroscopy, CCD imaging, and the newest hardware and software techniques, this is the conference for you!

Activities:  The agenda has not yet been set, but we plan to have two educational workshops on Thursday (May 30,2019), an "Evening with the Pro's" session on Thursday evening, two days of technical paper presentations (Friday and Saturday, May 31-July1, 2019),  a closing banquet (Saturday evening), and a Display room where our corporate sponsors will display their latest product offerings and discuss recent developments.


Call for Papers:  The Call for Papers will be released in December 2018.  You can review the Proceedings and videos of presentations from recent SAS Symposia on the SAS website:  SocAstroSci.org (go to the Publications tab).
