    « IAU centenary celebrations (1919-2019): astronomers as diplomats - when the IAU builds bridges between nations »

    Born in the aftermath of the firt wold war, the International Astronomical Union (IAU) had to cope with many crises and conflicts between nations. After the second world war, the IAU played an important role in building bridges between their astronomers. A one-day "IAU@100" celebration is held at Institut d’Astrophysique de Paris and the Observatoire de Paris, and will address in particular the creation of the IAU, the China crisis, the adherence of Germany, the USA-USSR Moon race, the little known, but acute conflict between the IAU and the United Nations about lunar nomenclature after the Moon landings, and the fruitful cooperation with UNESCO.
