Dear All,

this is an NCSS item - please pass this email on to "Young Scientists" who 
want to attend the ICSU Young Scientists conference in 2007, are in Earth 
Sciences and might fit the required specifications. Looks like it
will mostly be people in the remote sensing and planetary geology 
areas - but perhaps it depends how inventive you are. Ciao,

Subject: ICSU Young Scientists Conference 2007 - call for participant

Dear Council Member, National Committee Chair,

Global Scientific Challenges: Perspectives from Young Scientists, an international
conference celebrating 75 years of ICSU, 4-6 April 2007, Lindau, Germany.

To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the International Council for Science (ICSU),
the Australian Academy of Science will sponsor up to three delegates to attend the
ICSU Young Scientists Conference in 2007. No more than one delegate each in the
fields of Earth Sciences, Plant Science or Physiological Science will be sponsored.
These three fields have been selected because special purpose funds are available
to support travel by early-career researchers working in these disciplines.

Nominees must fit the participant profile in the attached conference description document, and be active in at least one of the scientific topics to be discussed at the conference.

The three scientists recommended to ICSU will be chosen by an Academy selection committee.

Nominations must be on the attached nomination form and accompanied by a Curriculum Vitae. Please submit nominations by COB Monday 16 October 2006 to:

Jeanette Mill

National Relations Officer

Australian Academy of Science
