The 16th meeting of the Small Bodies Assessment Group will be help at the University of Arizona on January 11-13, 2017.  The 16th SBAG meeting is now available for sign up on the NASA Conference Tracking System for anyone who must request approval for attendance on that system.  It is NCTS # 27699-17. 

Early career travel support: We are planning to offer limited U.S. travel support for early career scientists to participate in the SBAG 16 meeting, to be held at the University of Arizona on January 11–13, 2017.  Interested undergraduate students, graduate students, postdocs, and other early career scientists (within 3 years of PhD/MS/BS) should submit a letter and a CV to SBAG Early Career Secretary Angela Stickle ( by COB (5 pm Eastern time) November 25, 2016. Included in the letter, which must not exceed 2 pages, should be a demonstration of financial need and an explanation of how the applicant’s work relates to the purposes of the SBAG. The letter and CV should be combined into a single PDF document for submission by e-mail attachment.  Recipients of travel support will be expected to give a short presentation of their SBAG-relevant work at the SBAG 16 meeting.

We are very excited for early-career participation in SBAG. Please pass this opportunity on to appropriate individuals.
