Subject: Updated Call for Papers: 7th Australian Space Science Conference 
Dear Colleague,

We wish to invite you to submit an abstract for, and plan to attend, the
7th Australian Space Science Conference (ASSC). This year, the ASSC will
be held in conjunction with a Workshop on Australia's first Decadal Plan
for Space Science and a competition for student papers with the AIAA 
(American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics). This is the first
year that the ASSC will be jointly run by the National Space Society of 
Australia and the Academy of Science's National Committee for Space 
Science. Scientists, engineers, students, plus people from business,
government, community groups, and the general public are encouraged
to participate.

The ASSC will be held 24 - 27 September 2007 at the Sydney Masonic
Centre, Goulburn Street, Sydney. Preparations are in full swing.

including abstract submission details, registration rates,
accommodation, and travel details.

Abstracts are due by 29 June 2007 and early-bird registration ends on 
17 August.
