Astounding Stories of Super Science

Inaugural Symposium of Super Science Fellows

Hobart, Tasmania
April 18th - 20th, 2012

Update (20/04/12):  Talk slides are now online here.

Scientific Rationale

With new facilities coming online, even bigger ones just over the horizon, and scientific breakthroughs flying thick and fast, now is an exciting time to be an astronomer in Australia. In recognition of this, in 2009 the Australian Government committed $160.5 million in funding to astronomy and space science through the Super Science Initiative.

Part of this funding has been used to employ early-career space science researchers. Known as Super Science Fellows, we work in all areas of astronomy and space science, ranging from exoplanets to instrumentation, and cosmology to geodesy.

ASoSS is the inaugural meeting of Super Science Fellows, designed to share knowledge, establish links between early-career researchers and to showcase some of the cutting-edge research being carried out in Australia today. The meeting will feature talks from all Super Science Fellows, with general attendance (non-presenting) open to all members of the astronomy and space science community.
