AAVSO Councillor Kevin Paxson has completed and presented the results of the AAVSO's survey of the professional astronomical community. The AAVSO solicited participation from professional astronomers in an online survey early this year, and the results are now available in both raw and summarized form, with commentary and analysis from Kevin. The results were presented at the 2013 Spring Meeting of the AAVSO, and the final reports are now available here.
The American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO) invites the participation of professional astronomers in our "Professional Astronomer Survey of 2013."
Your opinions and comments about the AAVSO's data offerings, services, software, and other activities are being solicited. Responses to our survey will be used to improve the offerings and services that the AAVSO provides to the global research community. We will collect responses to the survey through April 15, 2013, and will post results and analysis on the AAVSO website in mid-May 2013.
Rebecca and I have put together a 8-item survey about AAVSO meetings. The goal of this survey is to give us information about what is important to you when you make decisions about meeting attendance. It includes questions about preferred locations, meeting structure, content of talks, etc. If you have a moment, please give us 5-10 minutes to take the survey. We would like everyone interested to take the survey, whether you have attended a prior meeting or not.
