Dear colleagues,

This is a call for proposals to host the 2018 ASA Harley Wood School of Astronomy and Annual Science Meeting.

An Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) has been held since the ASA's formation in 1966. The event has now grown to include more than 200 participants and several auxiliary meetings and talks as well as the Harley Wood School of Astronomy for students, which is held over the preceding weekend. It is now a major event on the Australian Astronomy calendar and is a fantastic opportunity for the host institute to showcase their staff, students, facilities and research.

The ASM provides a great opportunity to hear about the range of Australian astronomy and meet colleagues who you would not ordinarily meet in going to meetings in your own sub-field - as a host, this provides an excellent opportunity to have a very large representation.

In recent years the ASM has been held at both the hosting university and at commercial conference venues.

For the 2018 meeting, the aim is to hold the meeting outside of school holidays (ie, the week of 24 June or 22 July). However, as there is currently no single week that is simultaneously outside university teaching periods and school holidays, we will also consider other dates (but with a preference for those 2 specified weeks).

The deadline for proposals is 15 March 2017. For more information on what to include in the proposal see the following website: http://asa.astronomy.org.au/meetings/ASM_instructions.php#Future

A complete list of previous host institutions is available at: http://asa.astronomy.org.au/asm.php<http://asa.astronomy.org.au.php/>

Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries.

Kind regards,
