Dear Colleague,

We would like to invite you to attend the 7th SKA Pathfinder Radio Continuum Science meeting (SPARCS VII) to be held in Perth, Australia. Registration is open until May 30 and abstracts are due by May 12. Please follow the link on the website above. The aim of this meeting is to gather together researchers from the SKA precursors and pathfinders working in the areas of radio continuum and polarisation science. This will be the seventh meeting of an annual series. SPARCS was setup to share knowledge, techniques and experience on continuum science from the SKA precursors. This year the meeting will include synergy with polarisation surveys, a day of breakouts for planning SKA Key Science Projects, and the ASKAP/EMU collaboration meeting.

July 17: EMU Consortium Meeting
July 18: Updates from Pathfinders and SPARCS working groups
July 19: Continuum Science from Pathfinders
July 20: Polarisation Science from Pathfinders
July 21: SKA KSP planning (break out sessions): SKA Cosmic Magnetism and Continuum SWG team meeting
