Hel.A.S. Web Managers

The Hellenic Astronomical Society obtained an online presence on December 10, 1996. Its web server was initially located at the Section of Astrophysics, Astronomy and Mechanics at the Department of Physics of the University of Thessaloniki. V. Charmandaris created the first pages and has been the main curator ever since. As of December 20, 2012 the server of the Society is hosted at the Department of Physics of the University of Crete.

To facilitate access to the web site for users who lived outside Greece, for the first 10 years a mirror server had been set up in Cambridge, Massachusetts - U.S.A., using resources which were kindly provided by the Hellenic Resources Institute. The Society is grateful for this service, which is no longer necessary given the stability and increased bandwidth available in Greece over the past several years. In March 2007 the helas.gr domain name was reserved and a major "facelift" of the webpages took place.
