Dear colleagues,

It’s our pleasure to announce the Scientific Program of the 2016 ASA's
Annual Scientific Meeting.

The program is available at: http://www.asa2016.org/program-1/

We would like to thank all participants who submitted their abstracts.
Without you we would not be able to run the exciting conference that
ASA2016 promises to be.  This year we had a large number of high quality
submissions. We wish we could include all of them in the program of talks,
but some have been offered a poster presentation instead.

All together we received 210 submissions, including 180 requests for a
talk. The scientific program features 27 sessions and 136 talks, including
7 invited and 2 prize winner talks. The gender make up of the speakers is
33% (F), 66% (M), and 1% (O), repressing a slightly higher female ratio
than the submissions.

Regardless of whether your abstract is included in the oral program or not,
we hope to see you all at the 2016 ASA Meeting in July.  So if you haven't
registered already, please do so now. *The deadline for Early Bird
registration is very soon - 16th of May!*

Please also note the extra features of the program this year:
- an expanded Reception held at Sydney Observatory, with special guest the
Chief Scientist Dr Alan Finkel,
- a very special 50th anniversary gift for all registrants,
- the offer to contribute to a time capsule, to help represent the
Australian astronomical community in 2016 - who we are and what we do,
- talks and presentations on the history of the ASA.

For additional information please visit our website www.asa2016.org or
email the Local Organising Committee at info at asa2016.org, and follow us on
Twitter @the2016asa to stay tuned for further announcements.

Best regards,
Krzysztof Bolejko, on behalf of the LOC
John O’Byrne, on behalf of the SOC
