We are excited to announce this year's one-day Bolton Symposium to be held
on 10 March 2020 at CSIRO-Kensington in Perth. The Bolton Symposium,
organised by the current CSIRO Bolton Fellows and named after the first
director of the Parkes telescope John Gatenby Bolton
<https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/p7wqCNLwM9i0r3MNZcmfV25?domain=eoas.info> (1922-1993), provides a forum for
early-career researchers (ECRs) to showcase their excellent science, find
out what friends and colleagues are up to, develop and strengthen
collaborations, and get the most out of their time. The goal of this year’s
Bolton Symposium is to build and strengthen connections between CASS
astronomers (particularly ECR) and the wider Australian astronomical
community. As such, we want to focus on the sharing of the existing
expertise throughout the community with our promising ECRs!

*What will happen at the Symposium?*
The morning will be devoted to short research summary talks (remote
attendance available). For the senior researchers, this means short (1-2
min) summaries of their research expertise and experience. For the ECRs,
this means presenting a summary of their research and/or a current
challenge that they are facing in a short (3-5 min) talk. The afternoon
session will then feature an active workshop where teams are created to
share knowledge and work on overcoming some of  the current challenges
submitted by the ECRs. The day will then culminate with an afternoon happy
hour allowing everyone to further connect, network, and socialise.

*Who should attend?*
Anyone interested! ECRs (HDR students and postdocs) are strongly encouraged
to submit a current research challenge to workshop in the afternoon
session. The expectation is that everyone in attendance will present a
short talk either on their expertise (for senior researchers) or on a
challenge (for ECRs) and the titles will be submitted as part of the

*Important Dates*
*Registration submission deadline:* Friday 21 February 2020
