Original Entry: The American Astronomical Society (AAS) will hold its 240th meeting from June 12-16, 2022 at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena, CA.

Usually the major AAS meeting is in January each year, but because of COVID-19, the AAS cancelled its January 2022 meeting and rescheduled as many of the sessions as possible to this meeting.

More information is on the event’s website, which says: “The Division and AAS are now requiring that all attendees at the meeting not only be vaccinated, but they need to have received a booster.”
