The Southeast Asia Astronomy Network (SEAAN) was established in 2007. The aim of SEAAN is to establish effective mechanism for nurturing and sharing the development and experiences in astronomy research and education among Southeast Asian countries and its important mission is to seek for collaboration in astronomy in the region. The SEAAN meeting is held annually to discuss on the progress of the network and plans the future projects as well as scientific presentations. Recently, some joint research projects, such as the “Eclipsing Binaries’ Minima Monitoring (BIMA) Project”, Joint Project on the “Development of Radio Astronomy”, were initiated. The SEAAN Workshop on “Modeling and Data Analysis in Astronomy (SEA MODA)” has just organized in 2013 and the proposal for the “Program Group - High Performance Computing (PG-HPC)” during the SEA MODA business meeting was approved to coordinate the use of HPC facilities within the member countries of SEAAN. The 1st SEAAN School, namely the “Time Variability in Modern Astrophysics” is planned to organize in 2014. One of the vision of SEAAN is to encourage interaction and collaborations between young astronomers from all Southeast Asian nations , future generations to take up a career in astronomy and to promote interaction between young astronomers in SEA and other young astronomers worldwide, the South East Asia Young Astronomers Collaboration (SEAYAC) was also established under the support of SEAAN.
