2018 Annual Meeting, March 2-4, Midland College (pictured above)

Welcome to the NEW Texas Academy of Science website.  We have been working this summer to migrate to a new software system that will provide enhancements to the website, conference registration, and generally make things easier for you, our members.  If you notice any problems or issues (especially links that don't work!) please send a note to website@texasacademyofscience.org, and we will work to correct things.

We are also launching the new website with a contest As you can see above, we have merged the images we used on the previous website for the banner image.  However, we want input from you, our members.  If you have an image you want to see used, please send it to website@texasacademyofscience.orgThe images must be 2000 pixels wide by 400 pixels high.  We will look through the images sent and use these on our home page.  We encourage you to submit images on your home campus, Texas scenery, or pictures from previous TAS meetings. 

The 2018 Research Awards have been posted.  Please visit this page to review the guidelines for submitting a research proposal, as well as the criteria used for selecting the winners.  The submission deadline is January 15, 2018, and is open to ALL students.  There is a separate award for PhD, Masters, and Undergraduate students, with first, second, and third place finishers in each category.

New information has been posted on the 2018 meeting page!  Registration costs are now available, and housing information has been posted.  The meeting page contains these links as well as information about abstract submission.  Abstract submission is NOW OPEN and will remain open until Dec 4.  If you have questions about abstract submission, please review our abstract submission questions and answers.  We will keep adding more information as we get it, so keep checking!

Texas Journal of Science:  Andy Kasner has done an amazing job pushing the journal forward and is happy to report that we are now caught up!  We are currently accepting manuscripts for the next issue of the journal.  To submit a manuscript, please use the Texas Journal of Science menu item above.

Get Involved: TAS needs you!  One of the great things about TAS is its fundamental structure - the Academy's operations are handled exclusively by volunteers.  Join now to start getting involved, and if you are a current member, think about getting more involved - we are always looking for volunteers (section chairs, meeting hosts, board members, and more!).

TAS Statement in Support of Science:  On April 22, there are numerous Earth day and science activities planned throughout the state.  In support of science education and research, and to reflect TAS's general support of science, the TAS board has approved the following statement.

Christopher Vitek
Coordinator of Information Technology
