    In order to submit abstracts or apply for grants , you will need your pre-register (as explained above).

    The SOC is also offering English language editing support to applicants who may need it. This support is limited to editing/language but not the content or idea of the abstract. We hope this support can help to reduce barriers, especially for applicants whose native language may not be English. To request support, please send your abstract to cap2024@oao.iau.org with the subject “Language editing support”.

    Deadline: February 15 29, 2024
    Abstracts will be scored on the following:
    – relevance to CAP conference (purely education-oriented contributions are more suitable for the Shaw-IAU workshop on astronomy for education)
    – Problem addressed
    – Activities conducted
    – Innovation
    – Results or impact
    – Three things that participants will learn from the submission

    The IAU is able to provide a few grants to support those who have limited means of support, e.g., colleagues from economically less privileged countries and/or young professional communicators or scientists. Grants can be used to attend the conference online or in person.
    All grant applicants should first submit an abstract. Grant applications without a corresponding abstract submission will NOT be considered. You will not be awarded a grant if your abstract is not accepted.
    In addition to completing this form, please download and complete the IAU Grant Application Form at https://www.iau.org/static/meetings/GrantSymposium.pdf (use “CAP 2024” in the meeting number field). You will need to submit it with this form below.
    Please use the same email address you used for Abstract Submission and Registration, as this will be used to link them to your Grant Application.

    You must submit an abstract before applying to a grant.
