Dear ASA Members,

We are happy to announce the biennial Education and Public Outreach Chapter
(EPOC) (asaepoc.org) Workshop in Perth, at ICRAR, UWA on December the 5th
(Wednesday) and the 6th (Thursday) 2018. This is the second EPO chapter
workshop, the first of which was held in 2016.

The workshop website will be available soon at:
https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/vgR1Cp8AJQtMM8n7hPGLey?domain=asaepoc.org. To receive the latest updates about
this workshop, please check you are subscribed to the EPOC mailing list
using the short form on the righthand side of the asaepoc.org website.

Registration will open in mid September and run until a few days before the
conference. We request that, if possible, registration is completed as
ahead of time as possible to allow us to have a good estimate of numbers.

The workshop will be a combination of invited talks as well as practical
workshops, panel discussions, roundtables and planning meetings for members
of the ASA to update, expand and improve EPO practice, both their own and
astronomy in general. On the Friday (7th) there will also be an optional
tour to Gingin. There is scope in the schedule to incorporate talks and
workshop ideas from attendees, if you have such a suggestion, please email
us at asaepoc at gmail.com with your idea.

The day before the workshop (Tuesday the 4th of December), the Science
Teacher Association of Western Australia is running it’s annual “Future
Science” conference (https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/WBQBCq7BKYt0058ViXOOM5?domain=stawa.net) at Murdoch
University for those who might be interested.
