TRAVEL GRANTS FOR DPS 2005 MEETING IN CAMBRIDGE, U.K.
 
A small number of travel grants for the 2005 DPS meeting are available.  
These are primarily aimed at students but post-doctoral scientists 
without other means of full support will also be considered. Grants 
will consist of  a waiver of registration fees and either free 
lodging in a shared double room in the dorms (a $580 value) or $500. 
Preference will be given to those who have not received a DPS travel 
grant in the past.
 
The application package should be no longer than the equivalent of 
five pages, and contain the following:
 
1. A copy of the abstract of the paper to be presented at the 
meeting. Both oral and poster papers are eligible. Note that the 
abstract must also be officially submitted to the AAS by the 
regular submission process by July 1, 2005 (see 
http://www.dps2005.com
 for complete details).
 
2.  A brief letter by the applicant, describing the scientific 
significance of the research, and any further justification 
for attending the meeting (e.g. job hunting).
 
3. A brief letter of endorsement by the advisor, confirming the 
need for travel assistance and the unavailability of full travel 
support from other sources.
 
4. A brief CV, including degree status.
 
The deadline for submission of the application is Friday June 17, 2005. 
This date was chosen so that applicants will know if they have 
travel support before the official abstract deadline.
 
The complete application package should be sent as a single e-mail 
attachment (in PDF, PostScript, or plain text format) to the 
DPS Vice-Chair, Dr. Richard G. French (rfrench at wellesley.edu). 
The subject line of the e-mail must read "DPS Travel Grant", 
and the name of the attached application file must include the 
last name of the applicant (for example, "RFrench_DPStravel.pdf").
 
Applications will be read by members of the DPS Committee, and 
decisions on travel grants will be communicated to all applicants 
prior to the abstract deadline of July 1, 2005.

HISTORICAL ASTRONOMY DIVISION (HAD) MEETING
 
DPS members with an interest in the history of Planetary Science are 
encouraged to submit a paper to the History of Astronomy Division (HAD) 
meeting that will take place in Cambridge England in conjunction with 
the DPS meeting there on September 4-9, 2005.  The DPS bylaws allow a 
paper to be submitted on an historical topic as well as a second paper 
on current research in Planetary Science. Historical papers will be 
submitted in the same fashion as regular DPS papers 
(http://www.dps2005.com/) simply by indicating HAD as the paper's 
topic.  However, to facilitate the placement of HAD papers 
(oral or poster) into the Planetary Science historical contributed 
paper sessions, authors are requested to also send a copy of your 
HAD abstract including requested speaking duration up to 
30 minutes and media needs to Peter Abrahams (had2005 at europa.com).  
Receipt of this information in advance of the July 1, 2005 DPS 
and HAD deadlines would be greatly appreciated.
