Abstract

[Extract] These proceedings, edited by the undersigned four editors, consist of papers which were presented at the Seventh International Conference on Oriental Astronomy (ICOA-7) held at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, Mitaka near Tokyo, during September 6-10, 2010, and refereed by members of the scientific organizing committee of the conference. The International Conference on Oriental Astronomy (ICOA) was initially proposed by Professor Emeritus Nha II-Seong (Yonsei University, Korea), in collaboration with Professor Richard Stephenson (Durham University, Britain), and the first meeting was held at Yonsei University, Seoul, on October 6-11, 1993.

The primary purpose of the ICOA was to inspire studies on the history of astronomy in Asian countries and to encourage mutual communication and collaboration between researchers in an international context; scholastic activities in this discipline had until then been conducted mainly on a domestic scale. Another aim of the ICOA was to collaborate with Western researchers who studied Asian history of astronomy. Although it is not clear whether the second meeting was clearly born in mind by the organizers at the time of the Seoul meeting, the ICOA has since then been held regularly, usually triennially, during the past 18 years, up to the ICOA-7. It is also noted that each ICOA has published its official proceedings, including that for the ICOA-6 which is now in print as one of the Astrophysics and Space Science Proceedings series at Springer Verlag.
