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 meeting aims to bring together the key players in Antarctic astronomy, to further develop the work begun in 2011 at the "Taronga Zoo" meeting in Sydney, Australia.

Note: PDF versions of all the presentations are now available here. Some photos from the meeting are available here.

This is a SCAR Scientific Program meeting with additional funding generously
provided by the Italian Programma Nazionale di Ricerche in Antartide, and
logistic support from the University of Rome and the University of Siena.
