Recent Astronomical Activities: Near and Far Universe

The aim of the 6th MEARIM is to survey the interdisciplinary avenues in the fields of astronomy and space sciences and to create a solid block of astronomers and centers that can keep the initial momentum of moving astronomy forward in this part of the world, a momentum that will be produced by the MEARIM. The meeting is intended to bring together the astronomers, observational, theoretical astrophysicists and space scientists and to encourage the interaction and collaboration between them and to associate as many African and Middle East countries as possible. The Conference Covers a wide range of topics in the field of astronomy and space science to explore the near and far universe. The National Research Institute of Astronomy and Geophysics (NRIAG), Cairo, Egypt, will host the 6th Middle-East and Africa Regional IAU Meeting (MEARIM VI). This is the second time for MEARIM meetings to be held in Egypt after the 1st Middle-East African Regional IAU Meeting was held in Cairo-Egypt during April, 2008.

NRIAG has very long history of Astronomical and Geophysical observation since it was established in 1839 as a Royal observatory at Bollak. In 1903 NRIAG has been moved to the current location at Helwan, making it the oldest research institute in North Africa.
