(Note that pre-registration must be completed first in order to submit abstracts and grant applications.) CAP2022 will be organized from 12 to 16 September at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. Catering to all travel and mobility concerns and needs from our community, the conference will be organized as a hybrid event, both face-to-face and online. In-person participants will be able to book a post-conference tour to visit some of the world-class astronomy facilities in Australia, participate in Macquarie University's annual Astronomy Open Night, and enroll in a pre-conference training workshop. Under the central theme of “Communicating Astronomy for a Better World," the SOC invites proposals for oral presentations, posters, workshops, and panel discussions to be submitted online by 31 May.
