We are pleased to announce the First Biennial Conference on Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Science "Exploring the Universe: from Near to Far" during 16-21 February, 2024, to be organized by Indian Centre for Space Physics, as a part of its Silver Jubilee Celebration. Multi-messenger and multi-disciplinary methods are revolutionizing astronomy and space exploration, opening up new frontiers. Telescopes, balloons, small to big satellites and Earth's upper atmosphere as an ever-present astronomical detector are enabling deeper observations, revealing previously unseen objects and expanding our knowledge about the cosmos. This conference will showcase how these innovative tools are being used and discuss their role in unraveling the universe's mysteries, bringing together leading scientists to share the latest advancements in multi-messenger and multi-disciplinary approaches.
