ARMENIAN ASTRONOMERS AT IMPORTANT INTERNATIONAL MEETINGS

(IAU General Assemblies (GA), IAU Symposia and Colloquia, IAU Regional Meetings, EAS General Meetings, Joint European and National Astronomical Meetings (JENAM), EAAS General Meetings, Solvay Conferences)

 

Note. This is the first attempt to collect such information and therefore the list is far from being complete (beside the complete list of 24 meetings attended by V.A. Ambartsumian). Complementary information from the Armenian astronomers will be appreciated.

 

Separate lists of only IAU GA and IAU Symposia and Colloquia are given as well.
