Subject: Deadline: Letters of Intent to propose an IAU Symposium for 2017

Dear Member of IAU Division H on "Interstellar Matter and Local Universe",

The IAU is seeking proposals for Symposia in 2017 and we on the Steering
Committee of Division H request that you consider submitting one yourself.

There is a short deadline (September 15th) for a Letter of Intent, as
described here:

Note that for the Letter of Intent, you only need the names of the Chairs
of the SOC and LOC, not the full committee memberships nor a proposed list
of invited speakers.

The final deadline for proposals is December 15th, as described here:

Please send your proposals to me as a pdf file several weeks prior to the
deadline, preferably before December 1st, so that our Steering Committee
can give you advice and suggestions for improvements.

We look forward to an inspiring and full list of Symposia from our
Division members!

Best wishes,

Bruce Elmegreen, President of Division H
Leonardo Testi, Vice-President,
and the Division Steering Committee Members
