Rationale

Astronomy & Astrophysics from Antarctica became a Scientific Research 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 Society of Australia Annual Scientific Meeting in Adelaide the following week.

This 2nd announcement contains additional information to help you plan your trip to Australia.
