Meetings

The RAS runs, sponsors, or otherwise supports, a wide range of meetings, including a major programme of regular monthly meetings held October to May covering all aspects of astronomy (including cosmology, astrobiology, astrochemistry, astroparticle physics, computational astrophysics, etc.) and solid-earth geophysics (including geophysical fluid dynamics, planetary sciences, solar-terrestrial physics, etc.), planetary sciences, and solar-terrestrial physics.

These monthly meetings are held in the lecture theatres of the Geological Society and the RAS lecture theatre, all at Burlington House.The standard format is a pair of Specialist Discussion meetings, followed by a more general Astronomy & Geophysics ('Ordinary') meeting, open to the general public.

[See here for details of the forthcoming monthly meetings programme]

Webcasts and podcasts are available for many recent meetings.

The External Meetings Calendar lists meetings organised by other bodies in which the RAS has some involvement. (An archive of previous listings is also available.)

An extensive listing of international meetings is maintained by the CFHT librarian.

The RAS provides support for a variety of meetings in the broad fields of astronomy and geophysics. The normal route for requesting support from the RAS is through the grants programme.
