      Chinese Center for Antarctic Astronomy (CCAA) was built in December 2006, and affiliated to Purple Mountain Observatory (PMO) Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) now. CCAA is a center jointly initiated by Chinese institutes and universities, including Purple Mountain Observatory, Nanjing Institute of Astronomical Optics Technology (NIAOT), Polar Research Institute of China (PRIC), National Astronomical Observatories (NAO), Nanjing University (NJU), and University of Science and Technology of China (USTC).CCAA is aimed at promotion of Chinese Antarctic astronomy observations, international cooperation, exploring new frontiers of Antarctic astronomy, and establishing dedicated teams for research and development, all on open, circulating, collaboration and competitive bases. In the recent 24th (2008-2009) Chinese Antarctic scientific investigation project, Dome A astronomy group successfully organized the international collaboration between China, the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom. There are several astronomical instruments in Dome A now, such as CSTAR, PreHEAT, SNODAR, DASLE, and Gattini etc.CCAA is building itself in to a joint research center of Antarctic astronomy between CHinese Academy of Science, State Oceanic Administration, and the Ministry of Education.
