15th September – deadline for LoI for 2019 IAU Symposia

September 4, 2017, from Richard Morton

Dear colleague,

I know that we are all focused on the GA2018 in Vienna which promises to be very exciting yet I would like to remind you that the 15th of September 2017 is the deadline for submitting Letters of Intent for IAU Symposia in 2019.

Make sure you read the Rules and Guidelines for IAU Scientific Meetings in the IAU Webpage, in particular 2.1 and 3. prior to preparing the LoI. You should also consult the list of Past Meetings to avoid that your proposal duplicates any topic addressed recently, unless there is a strong scientific reason to do it.

I look forward to receiving LoI for many very stimulating meetings in 2019.

Best regards,



Teresa Lago
