The IAG Scientific Assembly will be held in Beijing on June 28-July 2, 2021. The Scientific Assembly is a quadrennial event, in the middle of the periods between the IUGG General Assemblies. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Scientific Assembly will be organized as a virtual meeting. Due to the exceptional and challenging circumstances, it took time to finalize all details and to ensure that we will have a full and high-quality programme. The Theme of the Symposium is Geodesy for a Sustainable Earth. There will be eight Symposia, with topics covering the activities of IAG Commissions, Services, Inter-Commission Committees and a timely topic on Geohazards. Full list of the scientific programme and sessions therein can be found on the official web site http://www.iag2021.com. The web site is open for registration and abstract submission.
We are pleased to provide you with some details about the FOF2021, to be held virtually on April 26 - 30, 2021.
We also want to mention that FOF2021 is held in the year of the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Astronomical Observatory of Córdoba (OAC, https://oac.unc.edu.ar/), a pioneering science institution in the region.
We remind you that the registration to the fof remains open and you can send your contributions until March 30th. Participants are invited to submit their contributions, which may be presented orally or as posters, filling the form in the website http://fof.oac.uncor.edu/2021/registration/.

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee we are pleased to announce that the conference CosmoSur VI will be held at the Observatorio Astronómico de Córdoba, Córdoba (Argentina) OAC, from October 18th through October 22nd, 2021. It is worth mentioning that this year marks exactly 150 years since the creation of the Astronomical Observatory of Córdoba.
The CosmoSur meetings aim to provide an environment to strengthen the relationships of South American researchers mainly in the areas of Cosmology and Gravitation; creating suitable spaces for communication and exhibition of the work of different groups and stimulating the training of students and young researchers, integrating research topics and allowing direct communication between them and different Latin American groups. This meeting has the characteristic of directly linking both theoretical and observational researchers, thus involving Latin American astronomers and physicists in different aspects of relativistic cosmology and astrophysics.
CosmoSur VI intends to repeat the success of the first five meetings that were held in Brazil, Chile, and Argentina.
The conference languages will be English, Portuguese and Spanish.
The list of invited speakers includes:
Federico Carrasco / IFEG-CONICET-Argentina
Farinaldo da Silva Queiros / Institute of International Physics - Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte
Elisa Ferreira / Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics. Garching, Germany (To be confirmed)
Elizabeth Gonzalez / IATE-CONICET-Argentina
Nelson Padilla / Universidad Católica de Chile, Chile
Oliver Piattella / Physics Department, Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo, Brazil
Claudia Scoccola / Facultad de Ciencias Astronómicas y Geofísicas UNLP - CONICET, Argentina
Nelson Videla / Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, Chile
The main dates are:
Meeting: October, 18 - 22, 2021.
Deadline for Registration: August 15, 2021.
Deadline for reception of Abstracts: August 30, 2021.
The registration fee is AR$ 4000.- (pesos argentinos), or equivalently U$S 40.- (US dollars); except for PhD/undergraduate students. This fee will be charged on the day the event starts at the Observatorio Astronómico de Córdoba. If the conference cannot be held in person, due to health measures taken by the authorities in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting will be held virtually and in this case, no registration fee will be charged. The final decision on the type of meeting (in-person or virtual) will be announced on August 1au.
