The International Astronomical Union

The International Astronomical Union Founded in 1919, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) promotes and safeguards the science of astronomy through international cooperation.

The International Astronomical Union (IAU) was founded in 1919. Its individual members — structured in Divisions, Commissions, and Working groups — are professional astronomers from all over the world, at the PhD level and beyond, and active in professional research and education in astronomy. The IAU has 10593 Individual Members in 94 countries worldwide. Of those 73 are National Members. In addi

#IAUsymposium The IAU is inviting proposals for the first Kavli-IAU Interdisciplinary Symposium, which will be dedicated to Climate and Climate Change on Planets and is scheduled to take place in late 2022 or early 2023.

The goal of the symposium is to bring together scientists studying a broad range of planetary processes to better understand the possible future of our climate on Earth. The symposium will also lay the groundwork for a scientifically driven IAU Springboard for Climate Action to recommend actions and activities that the astronomical community, including the IAU, can take at the individual and institutional levels.
