Grants for post-doctorants and PhD students

Are you a post-doc or PhD student out of France who would like a grant to attend the Journées 2020. In that case send an email, before April 1st, to the President of SF2A with a copy to the secretary, including a letter of “motivation” along with a current CV. Tell us which sessions you would like to attend and how much money you need to participate. The format of these documents is free. If granted, refund will be done on the basis of your receipts and a non-payment certificate from your home institute.

Contributions (abstracts)

Deadline to submit an abstract for workshops is May 1st.

The submission of a contribution (or two) can be done by filling or modifying the registration form (see the two links given above). Up to two contributions can be submitted. If you want to submit more contributions, please contact the system administrator.

Later on, a “book of abstracts” will be available online (and only online).

The proceedings of the conference give an annual overview of the current state of French astronomy. They will be published in an electronic format in English and made available on the SF2A website. They will be referenced in ADS. The instructions for the authors will be given later.


Deadline May 15th.

Upload your poster (pdf) on ftp  (username: anonymous, password: your email). Then go into the directory incoming/sf2a2020 and type : mput poster_name_Sxx.pdf where Sxx is the Section/workshop number you submit to.

Last, send an email to LOC to inform us about the submission.
