Every 3 years, the Network for Ultraviolet Astronomy organizes a Workshop to coordinate international action on the needs and means for Ultraviolet astronomy. In October 2020, the NUVA will hold its 5th workshop.
The topics covered in the NUVA workshops include an in-depth review of the scientific needs and objectives, as well as an update on technological developments and status of projects. This workshop is especially important, being held at a time when major investments in UV astronomy are being discussed, and coordination is needed. In addition, the UV Astronomy Working Group within Division B (Facilities, Technologies and Data Science) of the I.A.U. has elaborated a proposal for a standard UV photometric system that requires review and approval by the UV community.
We look forward to a wide participation.
Like many meetings, this workshop will be held subject to the status of the COVID-19 pandemic.
