TESS Science Conference III – Abstract Submission and Parallel Sessions | July 29th – August 2nd, 2024

The TESS Science Conference III (TSC3) will take place from 29 July to 2 August 2024, at the Kresge Auditorium on MIT campus (Cambridge, MA). TSC3 will focus on all aspects of the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) mission, including the wide range of science done with TESS data and the increasing number of data analysis techniques developed by the TESS community.

We welcome submissions from all institutions and career stages. Abstract submission for both talks and posters is now open, with a deadline of 12 April 2024.

We are also seeking proposals for parallel sessions, which can focus on any aspect of the mission. Parallel Session proposal deadline is 15 March 2024.

Anyone who might require financial support to attend the conference can apply here. Note that funding for financial support is expected to be limited and we do not expect to be able to provide funding for all applicants. Financial support request deadline is 29 March 2024.
