Change of Working Group


Unfortunately Klaus the leader of the working group "HAT - History and Astronomy through Time" will not be able to join the IAYC 2014 due to unforseen work related circumstances. Fortunately we were very lucky and quickly found the perfect replacement for Klaus: our new leader and member of the team - HANNAH!!

Hannah won't simply take over Klausi's working group though, she has created her own working group on the topic of historical astronomy and it's called HAGGIS! Please visit the "Next Camp" section of this homepage to find out more about Hannah and HAGGIS.

If you have already sent in an application for the IAYC you may now reconsider your working group choices - please send your updated 3 working group preferences to In case HAT was among your first 3 preferences we will replace it with HAGGIS unless we hear from you about your new choice of working groups.
