The AfAS annual conference focuses on the science, outreach, communication, and education activities emanating from Astronomy in Africa.
It seeks to enhance further collaborations among countries in Africa and the rest of the world.
It also focuses on the status of astronomy infrastructure, the International Astronomical Union General Assembly in Cape Town in 2024 (IAU-GA2024), AfAS and IAU-GA2024 flagship projects, astronomy for development, and initiatives aimed at attracting and retaining youth in astronomy and strengthening existing activities in the field.
