43rd COSPAR Scientific Assembly
January 28 - February 4
August 2020 is the opportunity for space researchers, engineers and thinkers from across the world to gather alongside Sydney Harbour for COSPAR 2020.
The timing is perfect.
Australia’s space sector is accelerating faster than anywhere on Earth; our new Australian Space Agency is prioritising the growth of research-enabled space industry and space-inspired education and STEM; we continue to pursue space science excellence in areas such as space and solar physics, space situational awareness, planetary science, astrobiology and more; and the country and indeed region are embracing the disruption and opportunity afforded by the application of small spacecraft and artificial intelligence to space research and space technology.
The 2020 Assembly will combine the latest in space research findings with activities designed to enrich the global space research community – including helping equip our future leaders, and workshopping with space industry – and inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers. You will have the opportunity of a lifetime to interact directly with everything that Australia has to offer – our science and innovation, our people, our heritage, and our beautiful environment.
The Australian space research community enthusiastically extends the invitation to you, to meet with us for COSPAR 2020, and in so doing to forge the friendships and opportunities that will connect space research for global impact.
