16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents : Exceptional Properties by Design - NiTi-Nb nanowire in-situ Composites Extending the Boundaries. Website | More Information
It is challenging to develop bulk materials that exhibit large elastic strains, low Young's moduli and high strengths because of the intrinsic trade-off relationships among these properties. On the other hand, freestanding nanowires have exceptional properties, such as ultrahigh elastic strain (...)

17:00 - MEMORIAL LECTURE - Improving salt tolerance in wheat: : Discoveries from the search for genes which reduce the rate of sodium accumulation in leaves Website | More Information
In this lecture, internationally renowned and highly cited plant scientist, Prof Rana Munns, will show how the combination of fundamental plant biology and targeted plant breeding can produce significant outcomes for crop production in saline soils.

Saline soils restrict plant growth in (...)

18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Probation worker responses to turbulent conditions: Constructing identity in a tainted occupation Website | More Information
Public lecture by Anne Worrall, Professor of Criminology, Keele University, UK and Honorary Professorial Fellow, Law School, UWA.

13:30 - WORKSHOP - Assessment: Learning's Destination or Journey? Website | More Information
When making assessments, questions such as the following are often not examined: What is the difference between an exceptionally good piece of assessment and a poor piece of assessment? Over and above testing, what have students learned and retained, and what should assessment offer the students? (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - The Metabolic Theory of Ecology: Prospects and Challenges for Plant Biology : Full Speaker CV is available from jennifer.gillett@uwa.edu.au More Information
The metabolic theory of ecology (MTE) as applied to the plant sciences, aims to provide a general synthesis for the structure and functioning of plants from organelles to ecosystems. MTE builds from simple assumptions of individual metabolism to make predictions about phenomena across a wide range (...)

18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Blue Forests for Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Website | More Information
A public lecture by Núria Marbà, Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), Institut Mediterrani d’Estudis Avançats (UIB-CSIC).

15:00 - SEMINAR - Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, Arc-transitive graphs with large automorphism groups More Information
Abstract:

An arc in a graph is an unordered pair of adjacent vertices. A graph is called arc-transitive if its automorphism group acts transitively on its set of arcs. We consider the problem of bounding the size of the automorphism group of an arc-transitive graph in terms of its order (...)

17:30 - FREE LECTURE - Raine Lecture : Raine Visiting Professor Lecture - Strabismus and other eye motor disorders Website | More Information
Professor Engle’s research combines clinical, genetic, and molecular biological approaches to the study of strabismus (commonly referred to as 'misaligned eyes' or 'squint') and ocular motor neuron and axon development. As a paediatric neurologist, her research has focused primarily on a set of (...)

13:00 - TALK - Talk: James T. Enns (UBC) - The Predictive Brain More Information
In the late 1990’s my colleagues and I began to ask whether the emerging view in neuroscience — that the brain was massively reentrant — had any consequences for visual perception and psychophysics. We came to the conclusion that it fundamentally changed the way we understood visual masking (mak (...)
Tuesday 23
9:30 - WORKSHOP - Improved Student Learning using Peer and Self Assessment Website | More Information
Self and Peer Assessment by students, when properly implemented, has been shown to result in significant learning gains and deeper understanding. In this workshop the process needed to establish rigorous self and peer assessments will be outlined. Participants will discuss the benefits to both (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR PhD thesis presentations. : Influence of physical processes and wastewater effluent on phytoplankton dynamics in the Perth coastal margin, Western Australia Website | More Information
The availability of nutrients, light, and physical properties of the water, including small-scale fluid motion, influence phytoplankton dynamics. The Western Australia (WA) coast is characterized by low nutrient concentrations, nitrogen limitation, low primary production (oligotrophic) and lack of (...)

17:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - School of Music presents: Research Seminar Series - David Symons Website | More Information
