The RAS holds regular monthly meetings from October to May covering all aspects of astronomy and solid-earth geophysics, planetary sciences and solar-terrestrial physics. Usually, a pair of Specialist Discussion meetings for Fellows are followed by a more general Astronomy & Geophysics ('Ordinary') meeting, open to the public, of which a number of the talks are available here Ordinary Meeting Videos.
These regular meetings are held on the second Friday of the month, normally in the RAS and Geological Society lecture theatres (both at Burlington House, London). A map to these locations can be found here, and webcasts/podcasts of a number of meetings are available.
E-bulletins summarising imminent meetings can be subscribed to freely.
Specialist Discussion Meetings cover all branches of astrophysics and solid-earth geophysics (including, but not limited to, cosmology, astrobiology, astrochemistry, astroparticle physics, computational astrophysics; geophysical fluid dynamics, planetary sciences, solar-terrestrial physics). If you would like to give a talk at a Specialist Discussion Meeting, please contact the Meeting Organizer.
'Astronomy & Geophysics' (A&G) meetings, also called Ordinary Meetings, have more diverse programmes of talks, at a level accessible to a general audience of scientists (and advanced amateurs). If you would like to give a talk at an A&G Meeting, please contact the Senior Secretary.
A&G Meetings are open to all, with free admission. Registration charges are levied for the February BGA meeting, and for non-Fellows attending any RAS Specialist Discussion Meeting.
A RAS Specialist Discussion Meeting organised by *Sarah Bridle (Manchester); Bob Mann (Edinburgh)
This meeting aims to bring together the ~200 people in the UK, from >30 astronomy groups, who have expressed an interest in (see http://www.lsst.ac.uk/governance for more information), and follows the recent Memorandum of Agreement between the UK and LSST and the resulting growing number of UK participants in LSST. This is an excellent opportunity for the LSST: UK Science Working Group to present current activity to help engage the wider UK community, highlighting exciting areas, discussing cross-cutting science topics e.g. survey strategy, and interfacing with the many complementary projects the UK has leadership.
A RAS Specialist Discussion Meeting organised by Andy Nowacki (Leeds); Richard Holme (Liverpool),Tim Elliott (Bristol)
The Study of the Earth's Deep Interior (SEDI) focusses on the study of Earth's mantle and core and has links to comparative planetology. The meeting will comprise invited review talks, contributed student-presented talks and include discussion about the big, unsolved questions in deep Earth research. Additionally we will have the opportunity for poster presentations over an extended lunch. This meeting will help to identify important topics in deep Earth research to which the UK SEDI community might contribute and we hope to foster new collaborations between UK and international deep Earth researchers. Submissions for contributed talks (abstract required) or posters (title required) on any SEDI-related theme are welcome.
For more details and abstract submission, see the meeting website at:
The AGM is only open to Fellows; non-Fellows intending to attend the following Ordinary meeting are welcome to wait in the Lower Library of the Geological Society.
