XXXII IAU General Assembly 2024 in Cape Town
The International Astronomical Union (IAU)'s XXXII General Assembly 2024, which received more than 3,000 abstracts from over 150 countries, marks a historic moment as it is the first time the meeting will be held in Africa and highlights the astronomical community’s eagerness to share their science with the world.

The IAU General Assembly will take place in Cape Town, South Africa, and online, from 6 to 15 August 2024. In addition to being the first time the meeting is held in Africa, this will be the first time the event will adopt an open-access format. Science enthusiasts across the globe are invited to share in the excitement online, free of charge. The organizers also believe that every scientist presenting their work should be able to invite their family and friends to watch them online.

A paid virtual option is also available for scientists wishing to present their research and engage with the international astronomical community without the hassle and carbon emissions of international travel. Virtual participation comes to EUR 300 for IAU members and nonmembers, EUR 190 for students, and EUR 115 for a daily ticket, and the fees will go up after 31 May. Paying participants, unlike those who listen online free of charge, can present talks, ask questions in real time, and interact with other speakers and attendees. Register before 31 May to ensure your virtual participation without paying the late registration rate.

Your participation in this IAU General Assembly will contribute to achieving IAU's Vision 2024 and the three core principles that define both this meeting and potentially future astronomy meetings: Accessibility, Impact, and Sustainability.
