General Assemblies & Administrative Meetings

General Assemblies

IAU General Assembly (GA) takes place every three years and lasts for two five-day sessions spread over two weeks.

This event is a unique opportunity for astronomers worldwide working in all fields of astronomy to come together. In addition to the core administrative meetings, the General Assembly also includes a substantial and attractive scientific programme. This usually comprises two series of three Symposia each lasting for three days, and scheduled during the first and second weeks, respectively. Fifteen to twenty more specialized "Focus Meetings" are also held, with up to five topics running in parallel. In addition, two full days are reserved for Division Meetings, with no overlap with the general program.
