ArAS ANNUAL MEETINGS AND ASSOCIATED EVENTS

ArAS Annual Meetings are the most important ArAS activity. They gather most of the ArAS members and other astronomers to report and discuss scientific results obtained during a year, as well as discuss the ArAS affairs. The meetings are being organized typically in summer in the Byurakan Astrophysical Observatory (BAO). All Armenian and other astronomers are invited to take part in them and present their recent results and/or reviews on their works. A few annual meetings were combined with other events held in Byurakan, like the Byurakan-Abastumani XIII Joint Colloquium in 2003 and the BAO 60th Anniversary Meeting in 2006. ArAS VI Annual Meeting was a part of the Joint European and National Astronomy Meeting (JENAM) and was held in the Yerevan State University in August 2007.

The languages of the ArAS Annual Meetings are Armenian and English.
