Dear Colleague

We are pleased to announce that the 2015 Bolton and Student Symposium will be held on the 2nd December 2015. 

This year CSIRO Astronomy & Space Science is holding a joint Bolton and Student Symposium. The symposium is intended for early-career researchers to showcase the excellent science being carried out with astronomical facilities available throughout Australia and further afield. All members of the Australian astronomical research community are welcome to attend and submit presentations, but preference will be given to students and post-docs.

**New format**

The format for the 2015 symposium will be different from those in the past. Each speaker will be given 3 minutes (+2 for Q&A) to present their research in a single slide. The motivation behind this change is to encourage early-career researchers to think about how their research fits into the wider scientific context. We expect the whole meeting to take less than a day, with opportunity for conversations over breaks and a lunch.

The symposium will be held at the CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science ATNF headquarters in Marsfield, Sydney (see the website linked below for details).

Abstract and registration submission is now open and will close on the 13th November 2015.
