Calling all astronomy and astrophysics students from across Australia! The annual Mount Stromlo Student Seminars are HERE! This year, we're celebrating a century of reflection with our theme: Yesteryears: A Century in Reflection, in conjunction with the 100th birthday of Mt Stromlo Observatory.

MSSS is a space created by students, for students, to come meet their Aussie colleagues, practice their presentation skills in a low-pressure environment, and have some fun! This year the seminars will last two days September 19th-20th.

We are excited to announce that this year, we will be hosting alongside the Mount Stromlo 100th-year Anniversary Symposium! Registration for this event is seperate and can be found on the RSAA website or at the end of the MSSS 2024 registration form. Attendees can choose to attend the 100-year Anniversary Symposium the day before MSSS, which will be free to anyone attending. Some of the invited speakers at the Symposium will be attending the Stromlo Seminar lunch and panel event so you can have the chance to talk to leading scientists in a variety of fields.

MSSS 2024 will officially be two days from Sept 19th-20th, and the symposium will be on Sept 18th. For those attending the Sept 18th symposium we will have a meetup for MSSS attendees at the morning tea beforehand (catered). Then the seminars will start the next day.There are no funds to pay for travel and accommodation.
