The Eighth Issue of the IAU Catalyst is Now Available Online

In issue 8 of the IAU Catalyst, our IAU Assistant General Secretary, Diana Worrall, provides a comprehensive overview of the IAU Symposia process from submission to selection. Division J Vice-President, Cristina Popescu, presents the highlight of the Division in 2022. Hear from Itziar Aretxaga and David Mota, ISYAs Director and Deputy Director, about the International School of Young Astronomers' upcoming programme. For this edition’s Science Focus, we welcome Tony Wong and Eva Schinnerer, Lennart Lindegren, Torsten Böker, Ashish Mahabal, and more.

As always, this issue also includes information on IAU publications, dates and deadlines.

The Catalyst is issued twice a year as an electronic-only bulletin. We hope you enjoy reading it and encourage both IAU members and the wider IAU community to get involved in future issues by submitting news and contributions about events or topics that you consider relevant to IAU members.

Previous issues of the IAU Catalyst are also available on the IAU website.
