AAA2017 Fourth Workshop of the SCAR AAA



AAA2017 Fourth Workshop of the SCAR AAA




Astronomy & Astrophysics from Antarctica (AAA) is a Scientific Research Program of SCAR, the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research. Broadly stated, the objectives of AAA are to coordinate astronomical activities in Antarctica in a way that ensures the best possible outcomes from international investment in Antarctic astronomy, and to maximize the opportunities for productive interaction with other disciplines. This meeting aims to bring together the key players in Antarctic astronomy to conclude the 2015 - 2018 Implementation Plan and to coordinate future strategies and collaborations. This is the fourth meeting in the series, following the AAA2011 in Sydney, Australia, the AAA2013 at the Certosa di Pontignano, Italy, and the AAA2015 in Hawaii, USA. In addition to Antarctic research, projects aimed at Arctic astronomy are also invited to AAA2017.
