** Please note, /*abstract submission closes on 14 May 2022*/ **

Dear colleague,

The SOC of the Communicating Astronomy with the Public (CAP) Conference 
2022 is pleased to announce that pre-registration and abstract and grant 
applications are still open. (Note that pre-registration must be 
completed first in order to submit abstracts and grant applications.)
*CAP2022* will be organized from *September 12-16 2022* at Macquarie 
University in Sydney, Australia. Catering to all travel and mobility 
concerns and needs from our community, the conference will be organized 
as a *hybrid event, both face-to-face and online*. In-person 
participants will be able to book a post-conference tour to visit some 
of the world-class astronomy facilities in Australia, participate 
in Macquarie University's annual Astronomy Open Night, and enroll in a 
pre-conference training workshop.
Under the central theme of “Communicating Astronomy for a Better World”, 
the SOC invites proposals for oral presentations, posters, workshops and 
panel discussions to be submitted online by 14 May 2022. A few grants 
and/or registration fee waivers are available.
*Deadline for abstracts and grants: 14 May 2022*
*Contact: *cap2022 at oao.iau.org


We particularly encourage ASA members and other Australian colleagues to 
register and take advantage of this opportunity on home soil. Australian
pre-registration remains rather low at this point. We are expecting well 
over 200 participants, split between online and in person attendance.

Best regards,
Richard de Grijs
(President, IAU Division C; CAP2022 LOC chair)
