Future Meetings of Interest to IAU Division III

This page is provided primarily to help IAU Division III meeting planners avoid schedule conflicts in planning meetings. It is not intended to be a primary source of details about the meetings. For more complete information on more meetings check the CADC Web Site or the IAU's list of future meetings.

Anyone planning a meeting for which sponsorship might be sought from IAU Division III should contact the divisional president, Michael A'Hearn, as early as possible so that proposed dates can be posted here and to be sure the Division is able to assist in avoiding conflicts.

Guidelines and application forms for IAU sponsorship are available from the IAU.
