Consulte el archivo

Boletín   enero, 2009

The official IYA2009 Opening Ceremony is set to commence tomorrow but the Secretariat is in Paris already, helping with preparations. It will be a great event with important keynote speeches, as well as other features of interest, such as live video feeds with scientists working in remote locations.
More information:

There are expected to be an impressive 900 attendees, which is an excellent figure for the Ceremony. IYA2009 is a global celebration however, so we?ve made some plans for it to be accessible to a much wider audience. To that end, there are two methods of following the Opening Ceremony.

The first is a blog written by IYA2009 Staff Writer Lee Pullen. This online diary will be updated regularly from today, and will cover the most important aspects of the Opening Ceremony. It is hosted on the Cosmic Diary website, and  the direct link is:

The second option is to watch a live webcast, which will be available from 15 January:

Please pass these details onto any individuals or organisations who may be interested; the more people the Opening Ceremony reaches, the more successful it will be!

Thanks for your time and efforts, and if you are in Paris, feel free to say hello. The IYA 2009 Secretariat is located in the room S381 located at the Sous-sol 1 (level -1).  Direct access to this room is through the stairs just across Salle I (Conference Room I).
