The first IAU symposium on Astronomy

Published on Wednesday, 06 February 2019 Written by Юлія Антоненко


In 2019, November 12 to 15, Japan will host the first IAU symposium on Astronomy for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. The symposium will be a roadmap to action, highlighting the role diversity and inclusion play in producing better science, contribute for competitiveness and innovation, and to focus on specific steps leading to change in the field. This symposium is for all astronomy professionals that wish to bring inclusiveness to their research and diversity to their teams, practices, work environments and institutions. As the first IAU symposium of its kind, this meeting will lay the ground for future IAU Resolutions on Equity, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policies in Astronomy and will ultimately seek official endorsement by the Executive Committee and during the IAU General Assembly in Busan, in 2021.

The IAU grant applications are now open. Please (pre-)register, submit your abstract and application by 15 June 2019.
