The Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics, Academia Sinica (ASIAA) is pleased to announce the first meeting of East Asian Young Astronomers to be held in Taipei, Taiwan from November 9 to November 12, 2003.
This ground-breaking event is jointly sponsored by ASIAA and the Coordination Committee of East Asian Meetings of Astronomy (EAMA). The meeting will bring together graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from each of the four EAMA core regions -- China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan, as well as some excellent lecturers from these regions, to study together, discuss research results, exchange recent information from each region, and sow the seeds of collaboration in the East Asia at the earliest opportunity.
The number of participants will be limited to approximately 50 postdocs and graduate student. There is no registration fee, and the host in Taiwan will provide funding for local expenses, including the welcome reception, social events, and a banquet. All participants are invited to give oral presentations on their research. More senior astronomers are also welcome, but due to limited budget, we can not provide any financial support.
We hope that this event will be repeated annually in years to come. A formal announce of this meetings has been posted to the EAMA website. Further details of the meeting will be posted to the meeting website. Please do visit the website, and feel free to contact us.
Again, we cordially invite you to participate the first meeting of this exciting series.
