The Liège International Astrophysical Colloquia (LIAC) started in 1949 at the initiative of Pol Swings, and they were continued with the efforts of Paul Ledoux and Marcel Migeotte. They were organized each year except for those when a General Assembly of the IAU took place. About sixty years after the first edition we are now at the 40th edition of the series.
