In celebration of 200 years since its foundation, the Royal Astronomical Society will hold its 2020 National Astronomy Meeting (NAM2020) in the city of Bath.
The Society’s founding president Sir William Herschel and his sister Caroline lived in the city in the late 18th century, carrying out work in astronomy that led to discoveries including the planet Uranus, numerous comets and nebulae, and infrared light.
NAM2020 will bring together astronomers and space scientists for the UK’s largest annual astronomy and space science event, taking place at the University of Bath from 12-17 July 2020. Leading scientists from around the world will present cutting-edge research, and the conference will mark the society’s anniversary with a wide programme of public engagement events.
The UK astronomy and geophysics communities are warmly invited to attend this special event. In the next few weeks proposals will open for scientific sessions, and applications across the widest possible range of topics are encouraged to showcase the strengths of the field.
More details on registration, the application submission process and key dates will be posted soon.
