The genesis of IAU Colloquium 182, 'Sources and scintillations: refraction and scattering in radio astronomy,' might be traced to the need, at the one hand, of Beijing Astronomical Observatory radio astronomers to prepare a convention which might spotlight the necessity for top sensitivity - as a fashion ofpromoting their very own undertaking to construct the world's greatest telescope (FAST) - and to a tenet from Ron Ekers at the different. in the course of a dialogue with the 2 SOC co-chairs (as they then weren't) in January 1999 in Epping, Ron famous the luck ofa assembly on 'radio seeing' in Beijing in 1989, and questioned no matter if the time may not be ripe to arrange one other convention dedicated to radio propagation. This set the ball rolling, and with enthusiastic enter from SOC contributors, a profitable program was once made to the IAU. Later, the URSI additionally agreed to co-sponsor the assembly. From April 17-21, 2000, over eighty astronomers from a dozen international locations met in Guiyang, China, to debate the latestexciting effects and theoretical principles on radio propagation via interstellar, intergalactic and interplanetary area. those professional­ ceedings comprise just about all (95%) ofthe oral shows given on the convention. as well as the fifty two talks awarded in the course of five days of the Colloquium, Ron Ekers gave a great precis on the finish to tie issues up. there have been additionally poster periods the place a few twenty papers have been displayed. in addition to the clinical classes, the LOC had equipped a application for spouses and otheraccompanying persons.
