ASGSR (formerly ASGSB) New Orleans 2012 Meeting Announcement and Call for Abstracts

The American Society For Gravitational And Space Research (ASGSR) is pleased to announce the 28th annual meeting and Call for Abstracts for the American Society for Gravitational and Space Research. The meeting will take place November 28th – December 2nd, 2012 in New Orleans, Louisiana at the Westin New Orleans Canal Place.

Make plans to join an international community of scientists and technologists to discuss gravitational and space research. We anticipate a program of unusual breadth, variety and integration with emphasis on space research and technology in physical phenomena and biological sciences. Symposiums are planned to discuss interfaces between biological and physical sciences, space health issues from the flight surgeon’s perspective, and gravity related issues in life support systems. Along with technical sessions on science and technology, the Center for the Advancement of Space (CASIS) will conduct an informative workshop scheduled for Wednesday, November 28, 2012.

Students are welcome to submit an abstract and attend the conference at reduced rates. A student poster competition (cash awards) will be held Saturday, December 1, 2012.

ASGSR (formerly known as the American Society or Gravitational and Space Biology or ASGSB) was founded in 1984 to foster research, education and professional development in the multi-disciplinary eld of gravitational research. ASGSR brings together a diverse group of scientists and engineers to encourage an exchange of ideas bridging basic and applied biological and physical science research and technology in space and gravitational sciences. The members represent academia, government and industry interests bonded by a common issue – how living organisms and physical systems respond to gravity. ASGSR is committed to training the next generation of scientists and engineers. Go to to find out more information about joining the society as an individual, student or organizational member.
