Astro2020 APC White Paper Deadline is July 10


The Decadal Survey on Astronomy and Astrophysics is issuing a call for Activity, Project, and State of the Profession Consideration (APC) White Papers to inform committee deliberations.  Ideas from the community that can be submitted include (but are not limited to) all scales of space- and ground-based science projects, activities such as infrastructure and technological advancements, and issues of consideration for the state of the profession.  We will begin accepting submissions in early June, and the final date for acceptance of APC white papers will be July 10, 2019.  More instructions will be made available on the study webpage next week.
