Scientists May Boycott U.S. Meetings

Riverside, CA

Last week, members of the International Astronomical Union (IAU), the Organizing Committee of the Commission G2 Massive Stars announced it would not hold any meetings in the United States as long as the ban on seven Muslim countries is in place. The committee reportedly encouraged the entire IAU to do the same. Although the IAU has not given an indication as to whether it will hold meetings in the U.S. during the boycott, it did express its profound concern regarding the impact the ban could have on international collaboration in astronomy as well as with the mobility of scientists. 

The UCR Library collects resources in physics and astronomy and the related disciplines of biophysics, astrophysics, and environmental physics. Part of its support of these disciplines includes not only access to information from the UC Libraries System and beyond including scholarly articles from organizations like the International Astronomical Union.
