Call for Abstracts and Meeting Announcement

7th Australian Space Science Conference
24 to 27 September 2007
Sydney NSW Australia

We are pleased to invite you to submit abstracts for presentations
(oral and posters) at the 7th Australian Space Science Conference
(ASSC). This will be the first ASSC meeting jointly sponsored and
organised by the National Committee for Space Science (NCSS) and the
National Space Society of Australia (NSSA). The ASSC is intended to
be the primary annual meeting for Australian research relating to
space science. It welcomes space scientists, engineers, educators,
industry and government. The focus this year will be on attracting
and bringing together the professional Australian space science
community, so as to make the ASSC the annual conference for
Australian space science, while retaining the strengths of earlier
meetings. Invited oral talks and both contributed talks and posters
will be presented, with prizes for the best presentations by graduate
and undergraduate students. A voluntary proceedings with fully
peer-reviewed papers will be published, with submission of papers
shortly after the conference.

This year’s ASSC will run in conjunction with the NCSS’s
workshop on implementing Australia’s first Decadal Plan for
Space Science, currently being developed. This two-day workshop will
discuss the Plan and Government's responses, better link the
scientific community and associated stakeholders in Government and
industry, and start implementing the Plan's recommendations.

Please make this conference known to your colleagues and attend.
