Resolution No.9 (1987): Scheduling of IAGA symposia
- 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,
- the reduced amount of time allocated to Association symposia during Union General Assemblies because of the existence of many Union activities,
- the conflict which sometimes exists between Union and Association symposia held simultaneously,
- 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.
