The 32nd IAU General Assembly 2024 is excited to offer free childcare facilities at the conference venue in Cape Town. (To allow access to the conference venue the child should be registered as an accompanying child during registration.)

We understand the importance of accommodating attendees who wish to bring their children along, and we’re delighted to provide this convenient option for you. We have set aside a secure room inside the conference venue itself, which will be staffed by qualified carers and equipped with entertainment for the kids.

Attendees can conveniently sign in their children to be cared for here while they attend talks, and of course, they will be welcome to come visit their children to check in with them between other commitments.

Delegates wishing to use this facility must fill in the below form to assist us in determining the required numbers.

If you have any questions, suggestions or requests that would make this facility better suited for your children, please do not hesitate to contact the organising committee at
