Astronomy and Astrophysics from Antarctica

	*** First announcement ***

SCAR AAA Second Workshop, 24 - 26 July 2013


The second workshop of the SCAR "Astronomy and Astrophysics from Antarctica" program will take place at Certosa di Pontignano , a former Carthusian Monastery near Siena, Italy, from 24 - 26 July 2013.

This meeting builds upon the foundations laid at  the Taronga Zoo meeting in Sydney in 2011 and is themed around the four AAA Working Groups:

	- Site testing, validation and data archiving.
	- Arctic site testing.
	- Science goals.
	- Major new facilities.

Astronomy & Astrophysics from Antarctica became a Scientific Research Program  of SCAR in 2010.  Broadly stated, its objectives are to coordinate astronomical activities in Antarctica in a way that ensures the best possible outcomes from international investment in Antarctic astronomy, and to maximize the opportunities for productive interaction with other disciplines.  This meeting brings together the key players in Antarctic astronomy to review the implementation plans of the four AAA Working Groups, and to coordinate future activities.

On-line registration is now open at  http://www.astronomy.scar.org/AAA2013/registration/

As this is a live-in workshop at a former medieval monastery, space is limited and early registration is highly recommended to secure a place.
