Letters of Intent for 2015

By the October 31st (extended) deadline, we received 23 Letters of Intent for Symposia in 2016. The deadline for receiving the Full Proposals remains fixed on December 15th, 2014 (on-line Full Proposal Form). The evaluation of the Proposals will take place in January-March and the final list of the 9 IAU Scientific Symposia to be held in 2016 will be finally approved by the Executive Committee during its 95th Meeting (Padova, April 15-17, 2015).
