Special Talk

Speaker: Nicolas Flagey (STScI)
Title: What could/should the astronomy community do make this planet more sustainable?      
Abstract: The goal of this presentation is to first share data with the audience. Data about the state of our community when it comes to its carbon footprint, diversity, mental well being, and more. I will then show that a better model is desirable, desired, and possible. I will make this presentation very interactive so all can contribute ideas so that our community can contribute to making the world more sustainable.

Speaker: Molly Peeples (STScI)
Title: Tips & Tricks I’ve Learned Along The Way
Abstract: This talk will be a condensed version of a smattering of pieces of advice I have found both useful myself and that I find myself giving other people on a semi-regular basis. I will cover a subset of a wide range of topics from overcoming writers block, constructing useful figures, writing and giving talks, applying for jobs, writing successful proposals, and generally trying to navigate a career in scientific research while staying relatively happy and productive.
