Abstract: We prove a characterization of the domains in $ {{\mathbf{C}}^n}$ with an automorphism orbit accumulating at a boundary point at which the boundary is real analytic and convex up to a biholomorphic change of local coordinates. This result generalizes the well-known Wong-Rosay theorem on strongly pseudoconvex domains to the case of locally convex domains with real analytic boundaries.
