The Symposium for Early Career Astronomers (SECA) is for young faculties in astronomy/astrophysics to know and interact with each other. Senior faculties are invited to share their experiences, such as research proposals, teaching, and career suggestions.

After the first successful SECA held on 2020/12/12 - 2020/12/13 in National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), we decided to hold SECA annually. This time, we are happy to announce that the second SECA will take place on 2022/01/15-2022/01/16 in National Dong Hwa University (NDHU).

Logistics information: NDUH is located close to mountains with numerous captivating views. However, this also means that it is away from the city center and the commute is less easy. Driving may be a good option but bikes could work too.

Please arrange your accommodation by yourself. There are B&Bs around the campus within about 20-30 minutes walking distance (some of which provide rental bikes), but please make sure to confirm their availability (some may have closed down due to the pandemic) and arrange your travels early. We will pay close attention to the development of the pandemic and act accordingly, including the possibilities of moving the meeting online.
