Additional Support for Countries Hosting their First IAU Symposium

The IAU Symposium Series is the scientific flagship of the IAU. IAU Symposia are intended to significantly advance the field by seeking answers to current key questions and/or clarifying emerging concepts through invited reviews, invited papers, contributed papers and poster papers. Accordingly, their programs should consist of reviews and previews and should provide ample time for discussion.

The IAU puts great emphasis on inclusion and networking, so taking into consideration the scientific impact that an IAU Symposium may have on the local community, the IAU will from 2021 be offering additional financial support to countries hosting a Symposium for the first time. So far the IAU has offered up to €20 000 in travel grants to support any IAU Symposium. From 2021, a further €15 000 will be offered to countries hosting a Symposium for the first time. The extra funding may be used for organisational expenses, including invited speakers. The IAU will be offering this additional support for up to two Symposia per year from 2021 onwards.
