UAT Steering Committee

The Unified Astronomy Thesaurus Steering Committee develops short and long term plans for the administration and use of the UAT with the interests of the global astronomy and astrophysics community at the forefront, and under the auspices of the AAS, steward and owner of the UAT. The Committee sets the general parameters for the overall direction of the UAT and is therefore comprised of representatives from groups with a direct stake in the development and success of the Unified Astronomy Thesaurus.
