Program of SCAR in
2010. Broadly stated, its objectives are to coordinate
astronomical activities in Antarctica in a way that ensures the best
possible outcomes from international investment in Antarctic
astronomy, and to maximize the opportunities for productive
interaction with other disciplines. This kick-off meeting aims
to bring together the key players in Antarctic astronomy, to review
the implementation plans of the four AAA
Working Groups, and to coordinate future activities.
Note: although this is an
open meeting, numbers are limited and so early registration is
recommended. This meeting is timed to allow overseas visitors to
also attend the Astronomical
