Resolution No.9 (1987): Scheduling of IAGA symposia

IAGA, noting

  1. the increased volume of scientific works which must be discussed by the scientists of the Association, in relation with the international programs of experiment and/or observations,
  2. the reduced amount of time allocated to Association symposia during Union General Assemblies because of the existence of many Union activities,
  3. the conflict which sometimes exists between Union and Association symposia held simultaneously,
  4. the lower attendance of IAGA scientists at General Assemblies, as compared with the attendance at Scientific Assemblies apparently on account of these constraints,

requests that the number of Inter-Association symposia be reduced (7 to 10 at maximum) and that the convenors of such symposia act in close contact with, and under the supervision of, the Associations involved.
