Given the day-by-day travel changes due to the spread of the coronavirus, here is an IMPORTANT UPDATE for you:

The abstract deadline has been moved to March 17, 2020 to accommodate all the other delayed proposal and abstract submissions.

For those who cannot register formally due to institutional travel restrictions, you can send your abstracts directly to UltravioletASU@gmail.com until restrictions are lifted.

We aim to make a go-no-go decision on April 7, 2020 as to whether or not to hold the meeting as planned on May 4 - 6, 2020 or to postpone to Fall 2020.

If we have to postpone the symposium, registration fees can be returned upon request or be applied to the Fall symposium.

Join us!

May 4 - 6, 2020

Ultraviolet (UV) photons are diagnostic of many stellar and planetary processes, including system formation, planet atmospheres, habitability, stellar activity, and star-planet interactions. With very limited access to UV observations of exoplanetary systems,  it is time to bring the exoplanet, stellar, and solar-system communities together to discuss the state of knowledge, identify the missing information, and plan the instrumentation needed for future space-based UV observatories.
