Empowering all Women, in Space and on Earth

Keep ready for COSPAR 2020

Dear all,

we’re happy to share with you the news of an exciting opportunity provided by COSPAR. Continue reading for the official description.


The COSPAR 2020 Local Organising Committee acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the country on which COSPAR 2020 will meet, the Gadigal people of the Eora nation. We recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

Australiaā€™s Indigenous people are the worldā€™s oldest astronomers. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to be careful observers of the stars. The stars are the homes of their ancestors, animals, plants, and spirits. The stars serve as calendars, a law book and inform all aspects of daily life and culture. The First Australians observed the properties of stars (such as brightness, colour, and position) and noticed even the most subtle changes in these properties.

Registration for the 43rd COSPAR Scientific Assembly is now open, together with accommodation options suitable for all budgets.

Sydney offers an extensive choice of accommodation to suit every style and budget. Whether you are looking for five-star luxury suites, contemporary and spacious serviced apartments, boutique hotels or low-cost accommodation, Sydney can meet the needs of all COSPAR delegates.
