Dear Colleagues,

I would like to bring to your attention OzSpace19:


This will be a one-day meeting at the University of Melbourne on Monday
July 22nd, focused on current projects, and opportunities for
collaboration on future (nano)-satellite missions for fundamental
research in astronomy, physics, planetary and Earth sciences, and
development of Space technology.

The program will include an overview of the James Webb Space
Telescope, an open-sky flagship for astronomy in the next decade, and
of the SkyHopper Space Telescope mission, an innovative concept for a
12U CubeSat equipped with state-of-the-art, actively-cooled infrared
imaging, hosted by an agile and highly stable spacecraft. In addition
to current projects, participants are encouraged to present their
concepts for future missions, and ideas to increase engagement and
participation of students and of the public in Space. Finally, the
meeting will discuss capabilities and expertise to support future
missions at Universities and research centers, as well as potential
pathways to funding.

The workshop is aimed at researchers already active in the area of
(nano)-satellites and to those interested in learning more about what
is now possible with relatively low-cost small satellites and

Participants wishing to present their ongoing research or future
mission concepts should fill out an abstract registration form on the
workshop website no later than July 5th. The organizing committee
will review submissions and a final program will be released by July

There is no registration fee for the workshop but those wishing to
participate must register through the website by July 12th:
