I.5.2. WOMEN IN ASTRONOMY LUNCH MEETING


The IAU EC Working Group on the Status of Women in Astronomy is arranging a Women in Astronomy Lunch Meeting at the IAU XXVII GA on Monday 10 August, 11:00 - 14:00 hr, open for all GA participants. This Lunch Meeting will have a number of round tables with chair persons; topics will be given for discussion. The aim is to improve the status of women in astronomy and to recommend actions that will improve the environment for all astronomers.

Pre-registration is required. Please tick the corresponding box on the GA Registration web page if you are interested in participating.

I.6. SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMME

The scientific programme of the IAU XXVII General Assembly was selected by the IAU Executive Committee and the IAU Division Presidents in their meeting in May 2008. The complete IAU XXVII GA programme, including the schedule for the Business Meetings, will be published on the GA web site and in the GA Program Booklet. In the present Information Bulletin, we provide available information on the IAU Symposia, Joint Discussions and Special Sessions during the GA. The three 2009 IAU Symposia falling outside the GA, i.e., IAU S260, IAU S261, and IAU S268, are listed in § II.4.2 of this Bulletin.


I.6.1. CONTACT ADDRESSES FOR SCIENTIFIC MEETINGS


Questions related to the Scientific Programme of the IAU XXVII General Assembly should be addressed either to

- the SOC chairpersons of the individual scientific meetings (contact infor­ma­tion is listed in this chapter for each of the scientific meetings: Symposia, Joint Discussions and Special Sessions);

or to

- the IAU General Secretary, Karel A. van der Hucht

, with a copy to the IAU Secretariat .


I.6.2. ABSTRACT SUBMISSION


The Abstract Server for papers to be submitted for presentation at the Symposia, Joint Discussions and Special Sessions of the IAU XXVII GA has been available as of 1 November 2008 at . The server provides instructions how to proceed. The Abstract Server accepts submissions in LaTeX format and provides a translator from RTF (Rich Text Format) files to LaTeX syntax for those who wish to submit their abstracts in Word or in plain ascii text.

The deadline for abstract submission is 1 March 2009.

Review of abstracts by the scientific meeting organizers will be completed by 15 April 2009. In order for an abstract to appear in the Programme Book and the Abstract Book, the presenter must be fully registered by 1 May 2009. If neces­sary, accepted abstracts may be modified by the authors in the period from 15 May up to 15 June 2009.
