Dear Herschel colleagues,

 This upcoming conference may be of interest to some of you:

"Exploring the Infrared Universe: The Promise of SPICA", 20-23 May 2019, Crete, Greece
The infrared wavelength range is key to understand the origin of galaxies, stars and planets. The SPICA mission, thanks to its large cold mirror and exquisite set of instruments, will revolutionise these fields, providing ultra-deep spectroscopy and polarimetry in the 12-230 micron range. SPICA will build on previous missions including Spitzer, Akari, and Herschel, and will complement current and upcoming facilities, such as JWST and ALMA, and boost sensitivity compared to past and current infrared observatories.

ESA has recently chosen SPICA as one of three candidate M5 missions in its Cosmic Vision programme, and they are now competing for selection. Everyone is invited to submit abstracts for contributed talks and posters for the conference "Exploring the Infrared Universe: The Promise of Spica", to be held on 20-23 May 2019 in Crete, Greece. Contributions with clear connections to SPICA are welcomed, in particular contributions that can help to finalize the design of SPICA, and to strengthen or augment the SPICA science case.

NOTE: Deadline for abstracts is 1 December 2018.
