The CAP Conference series is organised by the International Astronomical Union (IAU), through Commission 2 — Communicating Astronomy with the Public. The IAU has more than 10,000 active members in 98 countries worldwide and its mission is to promote and safeguard the science of astronomy in all its aspects through international cooperation.
The National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ), a leading astronomy research organization, and Fukuoka City, an area with historical connections to science and astronomy, teamed up to bring the international astronomy outreach and education community to Japan to directly experience the latest Japanese and Asian advances in astronomy communication.
Since 2003, CAP conferences have facilitated the exchange of ideas and best practices. The conference helps strengthen the local community of professionals by connecting them to the global network. CAP 2018 in Japan will be a unique opportunity to meet face-to-face with new professionals in the Japanese, Asian, and worldwide astronomy communication communities.
