ISWI Newsletter - Vol.5 No.55
2 May 2013

Dear ISWI Participant:

The following note came to me from Dr Hans Haubold at UNOOSA in Vienna.

Dear George,

Here is one more Poster for the ISWI Newsletter. It concerns basic space science.
The 20 workshops of the UNBSSI (1991-2012) have been cosponsored and coorganized by ESA/NASA/JAXA and have been coorganized by COSPAR and IAU. This has been highlighted in all reports on the 20 workshops (UN GA documents numbered A/AC.105/xxx). Along the line of workshops in the UNBSSI, COSPAR and IAU started organising their own series of "Capacity Building Workshops".

The IAU also developed their 2010-2020 strategic plan (an updated version link to document). Reports on all these workshops were published in COSPAR's Space research Today Bulletin and IAU's Information Bulletin. Attached is the Poster announcement for the 2013 COSPAR Capacity Building Workshop!

Thanks, Hans
