Postponement of The Inaugural Conference of the African Astronomical Society

Due to the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) the Executive Committee (EC) of the African Astronomical Society (AfAS) has made the decision to postpone the inaugural conference of the African Astronomical Society (AfAS2020), initially schedule for the 16-19th of March 2020.

This difficult decision of the EC to postpone the holding of the AfAS2020 meeting to a later date, is taken out of concern for the safety and well-being of the participants.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this decision. The AfAS EC and the LOC responded to current uncertain and changing circumstances as quickly as possible, facing concerns from some of our participants, pursuing every possible scenario to maintain the successful hosting of the AfAS2020 conference. The new date for the AfAS meeting will be announced soon. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
