This week's series of ESO Community Days around Australia has been 
extremely successful and well attended. On behalf of the Department of 
Industry, Innovation, and Science, the AAO, and AAL I would like to 
thank ESO's Director for Science Dr Rob Ivison, and the Head of the 
Observing Programmes Office Dr Ferdinando Patat, for making themselves 
available to share their knowledge with the community. We also thank the 
various host institutions in each city.

We would like to highlight some of the many opportunities for Australia 
in this Strategic Partnership with ESO that Rob and Ferdinando presented:

  * First, a reminder that the proposal deadline for Period 101
    <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/Db1pBJUZmJWnuW?domain=aao.gov.au> (Apr-Sep 2018) is Thursday
    28 Sep at 12:00 CEST (20:00 AEST).
  * Presentations by Rob on "Current Facilities and Future Perspectives
    <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/87W8BlUA0W7zca?domain=aao.gov.au>", and by
    Ferdinando on "Time Allocation at ESO
    <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/Qv1bBRfzg5bZFg?domain=aao.gov.au>" are
    available. Recordings of their presentations with these slides are
    available by request from ITSO.
  * ITSO has compiled an ESO FAQ <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/xMnXB1Ulk10Yck?domain=aao.gov.au>,
    with lots of helpful hints for new users.
  * ESO offers outstanding Fellowships
    for early-career scientists at ESO's Headquarters in Garching near
    Munich, Germany, and at ESO's astronomy centre in Santiago, Chile.
    In addition ESO are now offering Engineering and Technology Research
    Fellowships <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/Ov16BlfzQLOWF3?domain=recruitment.eso.org>
    for those looking to play a part in ESO's R&D projects. Applications
    for all Fellowships close on 15 October 2017.
  * ESO operates a Studentship Programme
    for PhD students enrolled in member states and Australia to come to
    ESO to work and study under the co-supervision of an ESO staff
    astronomer. Applications close 15 May and 15 Nov each year.
  * ESO has a Scientific Visitor Programme
    for visits of weeks to months in either Garching or Santiago.
    Potential applicants are encouraged to directly contact any ESO
    staff member or fellow with whom they may wish to collaborate
    <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/z4nRBmULR91etV?domain=eso.org> and coordinate
    their planned visit with them. Applications may be submitted at any
  * ESO organises and sponsors a wide variety of workshops and
    conferences <https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/rNKaBYfDbGLZFp?domain=eso.org> each
    year, mainly but not exclusively in Europe. A call
    for members of the ESO community to team up with ESO staff and
    fellows in Chile and/or in Germany to submit proposals for future
    workshops is issued in March each year.
