of New South Wales is organising a meeting to take place
in Kingston (near Hobart,
Tasmania), which will focus on the opportunities offered
by the new French-Italian Concordia
Station under construction at Dome
C, Antarctica, 75S latitude, 123E longitude, 3250 m
above sea level.
The station should be opened
for winter-over in year 2003 and is expected to offer unparalleled
observing conditions at Infrared and sub-millimeter wavelengths.
This meeting follows the two
previous meetings held in Casaccia, Italy and Nice, France.
It is open to all scientists, logistics personnel and engineers
interested in promoting astrophysics at Dome C or wishing
to share their experiences and results obtained with other
astronomical facilities operating in Antarctica.
We intend to publish refereed
proceedings of the workshop in the Publications
of the Astronomical Society of Australia.
A roundtable with presentations
and discussions about logistics issues for the astronomical
community operating at Dome C will also take place.
The emphasis of the meeting
will be on:
results from site testing and Antarctic astronomy
and experiments - planned and under development
and logistics for Antarctic astronomy
Concordia: a new opportunity
How to develop the scientific potential of Antarctica
An exhibition of companies involved
in Antarctic logistics, and sponsoring the meeting will
be organized at the Australian Antarctic Division during
the workshop. For more information, contact Paolo
G. Calisse or Jon

for submission of papers to PASA from the Third International
Workshop on Astrophysics at Dome C conference
The refereed proceedings from the Astrophysics at Dome C
conference will be published in the Publications of the
Astronomical Society of Australia (PASA). PASA is an ISI

linked to from the Astrophysics Data Service. The electronic
version of the journal is accessible from here.

prepare your paper using the PASA LaTeX template accessible
Please take note of the instructions given in the PASA LaTeX
template, especially those regarding the style files that
can be used. Please try and keep the length of your paper
to less than eight pages of the PASA LaTeX template, including
figures and references. We are aiming for rapid publication
of the workshop proceedings. To submit your manuscript,
please email a postscript file of your paper to the conference
editors. If your paper is too large to be included as
an email attachment, please place the postscript file of
your paper on an anonymous ftp site and send instructions
on how to extract the paper to the editors at the above
address. Please note that this procedure is different to
that given in the usual Instructions to Authors for PASA
