Following the success of the previous OzSKA meetings we are pleased to announce a 3rd meeting, OzSKA 3 Workshop, from 8-9 May 2017 at the University of Sydney.  Registrations and abstract submissions are now open<http://www.physics.usyd.edu.au/sifa/caastro/register/index.php?action=register&workshopId=122>.

The aim of continuing these meeting is to provide updated information to the Australian astronomical community about recent progress within the SKA project including: the development of key science and working group activities, progress towards the realisation of scientific operations on SKA1, and the SKA in the context of multi-wavelength astronomy.  The programme will include a number of invited talks, but a significant portion of the program will be devoted to contributed talks and discussion.
