26 to 28 December 2019, Singapore
The Southeast Asia Astronomy Network (SEAAN) Meeting was first held in 2007 during the Thai National Astronomy Meeting in 2007, hosted by the National Astronomy Research Institute of Thailand (NARIT). Since then the SEAAN Meeting has rotated among Southeast Asian countries. Recent Meetings were held in Bandar Lampung (Indonesia, 2018), Mandalay (Myanmar, 2017) and Hanoi (Vietnam, 2016).
The purpose of the SEAAN Meeting is to bring together people working in the fields of astronomy and astrophysics from Southeast Asia. It aims to facilitate exchanges in both research findings and educational practices, as well as astronomy outreach efforts. The 2018 SEAAN Meeting consists of plenary talks and poster sessions over two days.
In conjunction with the meeting, there will also be an annular solar eclipse on 26 December 2019. This is an extremely rare event and a fitting occasion to celebrate astronomy in Southeast Asia.
