Dear All,

below is a reminder about this year's ASSC meeting, on in Canberra
29 September - 1 October inclusive. Apart from the excellent science,
there will also be a Workshop of the Decadal Plan for Australian Space 
Science. Draft programs are available at the ASSC website 
http://www.assc.nssa.com.au , as are the registration and accomodation

The Workshop will include a Townhall video-conference meeting with
space scientists (primarily Earth observation / remote sensing people)
at the Australasian Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Conference [Darwin],
as well as vital sessions on the status of the Plan, its science
and projects, its structures, its relationships with NCRIS & DIISR and
industry, and the next steps towards Government support and
Government/industry funding. Briefing documents will be available
on the web next week. Votes are envisaged on community support
for the Plan and proposed future steps.

Please attend, and also encourage others to attend, both ASSC and the Plan 
Workshop. You will need to register to attend.

Yours sincerely,


(Iver Cairns, Chair, National Committee for Space Science,

The Australian Space Science Conference is only 2 weeks away. The
program is confirmed and boasts some excellent presenters and space
science research. All information relating to the ASSC can be found

We will also be hosting an international delegation of
representatives from Ukraine Space Agency.

The rates for this ASSC are lower than last year and provide an
excellent opportunity for attendance and personal professional
development. Meet new people, exchange ideas and network.

As part of the conference program, there will be a dinner on the
Tuesday and a public seminar on Wednesday. This is a wonderful
opportunity to socialise with other delegates in a relaxed and open
atmosphere. Places are limited, so please RSVP as soon as possible.

also placed a shortened overview, which is smaller in size and has
the essential ASSC information.

We look forward to welcoming you to the space science event in
