Astronomers in Serbia

The SAS is a purely professional Society devoted to development of astronomy in Serbia. The SAS has about 100 members, mainly from the Astronomical Observatory in Belgrade and from the Department of Astronomy of the University of Belgrade, but also from astronomical societies.

There are few members from other towns and several from abroad. The majority of members come from places where astronomy (and astrophysics) is taught either at the independent study group (Belgrade) or within the physics study group (Novi Sad, Nis, Kragujevac).
