La IAU más cerca que nunca

The International Astronomical Union (IAU) has more that 13000 members. Each country pays according to a table that has to do with the number of people belongin to the IAU. But the IAU is not only a club of members but has a number of activities that are open to every member.

In particular the IAU run 9 Symposia per year with topics relevant to current astrophysics. On years where there are a General Assembly on top of the 9 Symposia the IAU run several focus meetings that are of smaller scale but very focused on certain topics of fiery interest. The IAU also run regional meetings. I several regions, such as Latin-America, The Middle East and North Africa, and Asia.

The IAU run besides four offices. The office of young Astronomer, which is the oldest one, the Office for Astronomy for Development, the Office for Astronomy Outreach, and the more recent one, te Office for Astronomy Education. Each of those Offices has established centres in many places. During my seminair I will talk about the activities of these four Offices.

Finally I will talk about the prizes each Division offer to the best Ph.D., plus other different prizes
