10th KaVA Joint Science WG meeting banner


We are pleased to announce that the   10th NARIT-KaVA Joint Science WG Meeting will be held on 21-24 February 2016 at Ao Nang Villa, Krabi, Thailand

Recently there has been much effort in submitting the proposal of the Thai National Radio Observatory (TNRO), which will include a 25-metre radio telescope, to the government. We have also been in close collaborations with Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI) and National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ) in supporting the project for both technical and research training in the coming years. In this context, the 10th anniversary KaVA SWG meeting is extended and held as the NARIT-KaVA Joint Science WG meeting.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Krabi.
