Dear colleagues

The National Committee for Astronomy (NCA) has begun the process of reviewing the 2016–2025 Decadal Plan for Australian Astronomy. In preparation for the full mid-term review (due for publication in 2020) the NCA commissioned a Capabilities and Opportunities Paper, a summary of the current status of the decadal plan, noting areas of achievement, summarising current capability and highlighting potential future opportunities that were not recognised at the time of writing. This paper will serve as an initial guide to community discussions prior to drafting of the mid-term review document.

The 2019 Capabilities and Opportunities Paper is available at the mid-term review website: www.science.org.au/astronomy-midterm<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/7Om8CD1jy9tWmAG8fWYzmW?domain=science.org.au>

During September and October, the Mid-Term Review Committee is inviting stakeholder groups to undertake town-hall meetings and submit white papers on their discipline to inform the review. A calendar listing community consultation events is available on the website. If you are organising such a consultation event, please email meaghan.dzundza at science.org.au<mailto:meaghan.dzundza at science.org.au> to list it here.

The website also contains information on timeframes, committee membership, review procedures and governance.

If you have any questions about the review process, please be in touch with me at Lister.Staveley-Smith at uwa.edu.au<mailto:Lister.Staveley-Smith at uwa.edu.au>

Kind regards

Professor Lister Staveley-Smith
Chair, National Committee for Astronomy
