The first International Olympiad on Astronomy and Astrophysics is to commemorate His Majesty the King's 80th Birthday and H.R.H. Princess Galyani Vadhana's 84th Birthday in the year 2007.
But it is sad that Her Royal Highness Princess Galyani Vadhana, the beloved sister of His Majesty the King, passed away at 02:54 a.m. Wednesday, 2nd January 2008 after a lengthy illness at Siriraj Hospital, the Royal Houselhold Bureau has announced.The purpose of IOAA is to promote interests and educations on astronomy and astrophysics of high school students. By participating in the competitions, students will have opportunities to meet fellow students of the same interests and make friends. This will lead to good understandings among countries and hence collaboration in future researches.
This year the second IOAA will take place in Bandung, Indonesia. Bandung is the capital of West Java province where the historical Asia Africa Conference was held in 1955.
