It is our pleasure to invite you to submit an abstract for a
presentationat  the 9th Australian Space Science Conference (ASSC),
to be held in Sydney. This will be the third ASSC 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, and workers
in Industry and Government.

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 one-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.

The scope of the conference covers fundamental and applied research
that applies to space technologies, and includes the following:

  *Space science*, including space and atmospheric physics, remote
sensing from/of space, planetary sciences, astrobiology and life
sciences, and space-based astronomy and astrophysics.
  *Space engineering*, including communications, navigation, space
operations, propulsion and spacecraft design, testing, and
  *Space industry*
  *Government, international relations and law*
  *Education and outreach*
