ASTC 2019: Call for Proposals Open; Proposal Webinar Is Dec. 5

The Call for Proposals is now open for the 2019 ASTC Annual Conference in Toronto, hosted by the Ontario Science Centre September 21–24, 2019.

The conference theme, “Moonshots: Rendezvous with the Future,” is a springboard for sessions, poster presentations, and preconference ASTC Intensive workshops that advance the science center field, inspired by moonshots—those ambitious, yet achievable, goals that leverage science and technology to solve difficult problems.

The 2019 event will offer an opportunity to explore the strategies, people, operations, programs, technologies, partnerships, and new approaches that will shape how science centers function in the decades ahead.

With your contributions, ASTC 2019 will inspire science center and museum leaders to go beyond our own institutions and launch the 21st-century moonshots that will shape the world.

Your can download the ASTC 2019 Call for Proposals here.


If you are interested in submitting a session, poster, or ASTC Intensive idea, watch the recording of “Preparing Your Strongest ASTC 2019 Proposal,” the December 5 webinar with details on the Call for Proposals, submitting online, and questions and answers from participants.


Proposals are due by 11:59 p.m. (Pacific Time) on Thursday, December 20, 2018, and may be submitted online any time before then.
