Please submit all updates by December 1, 2017.  This includes all name changes (substitutions and additions).  This date is FINAL.  December 1, 2017 is the AAS' deadline to finalize the final conference program file for submission to our publisher.  This means all TITLE and NAME UPDATES must be submitted by this date to be included in the final printed program.

We strongly suggest if there are new additions to the panel you begin this process soon in an effort to allow the individual time to pre-register by the December 1, 2017 participant pre-registration deadline.
