COSPAR’s second Symposium, with the theme Water and Life in the Universe, will be held in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil. We are grateful to São Paulo State University (UNESP) and the National Institute for Space Research (INPE) for offering to organize a meeting in the Symposia series, for the primary purpose of these events is to promote space research in countries with medium space infrastructures.

Brazil, of course, has a space program with many accomplishments, and with an ambitious future, in which research has played and will continue to play an important part in obtaining its objectives. Brazil’s long and deepening participation in COSPAR activities attests to the importance it places on research, training, and international cooperation as important stepping stones on the road to development of its space program, and COSPAR is pleased to contribute through the organization of this international Symposium which, in addition to the core program of oral and poster sessions, plenary talks, and keynote speeches, will include a teacher training event and a COSPAR Capacity Building Workshop on “Data Analysis of Space Missions.”

Foz do Iguaçu, with its immense and impressive water falls as well as ITAIPU, the dam with the greatest hydroelectric power production in the world, is a most appropriate, indeed an ideal spot for a Symposium broadly addressing the topics of water and life. The city, for many decades a magnet for tourists, is a regular host to large international meetings and well-located on the border between Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay with easy and direct access from many gateway cities in South America. I encourage all COSPAR Associates in relevant fields to block their calendars for this Symposium which promises not only excellent science but also a truly unique setting and look forward to seeing many of you at the Falls in November 2015.
