About these proceedings


These proceedings are concerned with discoveries from the Infra-Red Astronomical Satellite IRAS including follow-up projects in theoretical and observational astronomy. In particular, they stress the solar system results from IRAS. A huge range of astronomical topics is addressed including asteroids, comets, dust in the solar neighbourhood, young stars, old stars, the interstellar medium, and the Galactic cosmic background at various wavelengths.
