Application Deadline Extended for Academies’ US-China Young Scientists Forum

The Space Studies Board of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine is inviting young (under 40) space science researchers to apply to participate in its 2018 U.S-China Forum for New Leaders in Space Science.  Astrophysics and heliophysics are the focus this time.  Applications are due July 28.

Initiated in 2014, the forum allows a small group of researchers from both countries to meet in China and in the United States to discuss their research activities.  This pair of forums are on January 23-24, 2018 in Guangzhou, China and July 12-13, 2018 in Pasadena, CA.  Travel and subsidence expenses for U.S. scientists will be paid by the National Academies using non-government funds.   Applicants must be available to participate in both meetings.

This set of forums is focused on astronomy and astrophysics and solar and space physics.  The original application deadline of July 14 has been extended to July 28.  Participants will be selected by an International Program Committee.

More information, eligibility criteria, and application instructions are on the SSB website.
