Astronomy and Astrophysics from Antarctica, 2016-2017 Report
Report Author(s): Professor Anna Moore, Australian National University, on behalf of the AAA steering committee
Summary of activities from 2016-17 and any other important issues or factors:
The AAA SRP continues to satisfy the goals of the 2014-2018 operational plan. During the 2016-17 period, AAA convened and supported both a half day science session and business meeting at the SCAR open science conference in Kuala Lumpur. Four members of the steering committee were rotated as previously presented to SCAR ExCom. The steering committee unanimously endorsed the fourth AAA workshop to be hosted by the National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand (NARIT) in Chiang Mai, Thailand on July 31- Aug 4, 2017. Approximately fifty participants will attend this meeting from all over the globe to present their work in Antarctic Astronomy at this international forum. There is significant participation from the astronomical community of Thailand and the south-east Asia region. The SCAR AAA website has been significantly updated during this period to produce a web portal for all astronomical researchers to access existing data.
