Important Issues or Factors: SCAR AAA is operating well, as it works to achieve its objectives. Broadly stated, these are to coordinate astronomical activities in Antarctica in a way that ensures the best possible outcomes from international investment in Antarctic astronomy, and maximizes the opportunities for productive interaction with other disciplines. SCAR AAA continues to welcome astronomers from additional countries into the community of Antarctic astronomy. In 2015 - 2016 this has included Taiwan and Thailand. SCAR AAA is scheduled to wind up at the end of 2018.
