The Proceedings Series of the International Astronomical Union (IAU) comprises high-quality and timely previews and reviews of fundamental and state-of-the-art astrophysical developments around the world, as presented at some ten IAU-sponsored conferences per year. The organisation of scientific conferences is a key activity of the IAU. The results are recorded in the Proceedings of its Symposia, Colloquia, in its Transactions A and B, and in its Highlights of Astronomy that contains the Proceedings of Joint Discussions held at the triennial General Assemblies of the IAU. Subjects covered by the IAU conferences are fundamental astronomy; the sun and heliosphere; planetary systems, stars; interstellar matter; the galactic system; galaxies and the universe; optical and infrared techniques; radio astronomy; and space and high-energy astrophysics. The Proceedings of these conferences are published under the auspices of the IAU, as important records of the status of those scientific fields. The IAU Proceedings Series is essential reading for both professional astrophysicists and students, for finding comprehensive reviews and for studying new developments in specialized fields.
