IAU XXVI

Every three years, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) has a general assembly. This lets astronomers from all over the world get together to discuss the important astronomical matters of the day. I managed to attend the assembly in 2000 as it took place in Manchester - the travel/accommodation costs are minimal when you can use a bicycle from home. In 2003 it was in Sydney and next year, the 26th assembly, will be in Prague. Preliminary registration is already open and there are quite a few people signed up. I would really like to go to this one so I shall have to sort out some funding from somewhere.

Top of the preliminary registration list is a certain podcaster who either didn't pay attention to the input fields on the form or just wanted to use his first name to put him at the top of the list.
