Dear All,

As AAL's Giant Magellan Telescope SAC representative I would like to 
draw your attention to the Sixth Annual GMT Community Science Meeting, 
Stars: Birth and Death being held at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki 
in Hawaii on Sept. 13-15, 2018.

The goal with these annual meetings is to bring people together across 
the community to hear about the most exciting current research and think 
about the next big questions in the field. An introduction and current 
status of the GMT will be presented to kick off the meeting. We look 
forward to a good representation of our GMT community and the broader 
community. Partial travel reimbursement may be provided for graduate 
students and postdoctoral researchers.

Please visit the website, https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/SHdAC5QZ29FwK7VEHzjHq4?domain=gmtconference.org, for more 
details. In particular, the meeting overview describes the meeting in 
more detail: While stars spend most of their lives as stable, 
fusion-powered objects, stellar birth and death involve some of the most 
dramatic and diverse physical processes known to astrophysicists. 
Stellar beginnings are shrouded in dust and difficult to observe, and 
the next generation of large telescopes will offer transformative 
opportunities to understand this first chapter of the star formation 
story. Stellar death is often explosive, and a burgeoning swell of data 
on transient objects offers great opportunities for advancing our 
understanding of the last chapter of the stellar story. This conference 
brings together experts in the fields of star formation and stellar 
disruptions, eruptions and explosions. We will focus on key open 
questions that can be solved in the upcoming era of extremely large
