Space Industry Panel in Perth: Recent Developments in Australian Space, 27 May 2014

If you live in Perth, and you love space, you're in luck. The Space Industry Association of Australia (in cooperation with CSIRO Australian Resources Research Centre), is holding its next forum in your beautiful city.

 
5.00 - 6.30 pm (followed by a reception)
Tuesday 27 May 2014
ARRC Building, CSIRO
26 Dick Perry Avenue
Technology Park, Kensington WA 6151 
*RSVP by 25 May 2014

Five luminaries of Australian space will be take part in a panel moderated by SIAA Chair Michael Davis. They are:
  • Brett Biddington, Biddington Research
  • Phil Crosby, CSIRO Australian Resources Research Centre
  • Roger Franzen, ANU Research School of Astronomy & Astrophysics
  • Jeff Kasparian, Institute of Telecommunications Research, University of South Australia
  • Randall Wayth, Curtin Institute for Radio Astronomy
The panellists will talk about projects of local and national significance as well as recent developments in the Australian space sector. They'll share their views on the direction they believe the Australian space industry should be heading in, and the respective roles of government and industry in shaping the future of Australian space.
 
The website has more information about how to get there, parking, etc. The event is free, but you do have the register.
 
So get behind Australian space, WA, and get over to the ARRC in May! Tell 'em Dr Space Junk says hi!

  1. My co-worker attended these conferences since he has been working on space industry news and he said that there are a lot of attendees, not only coming from Perth, but from other parts of Australia and the world. It was great to see, he said, that Perth is getting this much attention in the space industry and hopefully the interest could be sustained in the future. It would be sad to see that this is just only a one-off thing.

  2. There's a heap of great space things going on in WA, and I know the SIAA has plans to hold another forum there - it might not be for a while though. It would also be great for the Australian Space Research Conference to make it to Perth - fingers crossed for that one!
