16:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Mathematics and Statistics Colloquium : An invitation to finite geometry Website | More Information
Finite geometry involves the study of finitely many objects -- points, lines, planes, etc -- in analogy with classical geometric language and concepts. The exciting aspect of finite geometry is that it often shares properties of the usual Euclidean geometry, yet the finite-ness of the geometry (...)

16:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Science Exchange Series - Where did the beach go? Website | More Information
Our local beaches have had a rough start to winter with many looking narrower than they have been in some years as a result of recent storms. Many of us who visit our local WA beaches may wonder how and why our coastlines change shape so dramatically throughout the seasons.

Join Dr Jeff (...)
Tuesday 23
16:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Science Exchange Series - First Impressions and Why They Matter Website | More Information
Don’t judge a book by its cover. Appearances can be deceiving. Despite these warnings, evidence shows that people can’t help but make rapid judgements of character based on a mere glimpse of a stranger’s face. These impressions really matter because they predict all sorts of social outcomes. For (...)

17:00 - EVENT - Three Steps to an Affordable Zero Waste Mine Website | More Information
Waste minimisation and byproduct reuse is a growing challenge for the global mining industry, driven by investor, regulatory, and community pressures as well as internal corporate and industry-wide goals. Responding to this challenge requires mining companies to develop strategies and technology to (...)

10:00 - SEMINAR - The Vienna Dexippus: New Contributions from Multispectral Imaging to Third Century History and Literature : Digital Humanities Research Cluster seminar series Website | More Information
The recovery of the ‘Vienna Dexippus’ has been one of the most significant discoveries in recent Classical palaeography. The text, recovered from the reused leaves of an 11th century manuscript, later bound into a 13th century Greek codex, now in the Austrian National Library, sheds considerable (...)
Tuesday 07
15:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Science Exchange Series - Cake! and Earthquakes Website | More Information
Why do we have earthquakes in WA? Why do they happen more in some areas and not at all in others? WA is a long way from a tectonic plate boundary, so our earthquakes are different in nature to those in places like California, Indonesia or Japan.

Join Prof Myra Keep and PhD candidate (...)
Tuesday 14
16:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Science Exchange Series - Loving Thy Neighbour: Insights from Primates Website | More Information
Conflicts between groups are deeply rooted in our society, but we also have the capacity to get along with our neighbours and ally for a common goal.

Using evolutionary theory as a navigational guide, Dr Cyril C. Grueter draws on his research on the social organisation of our primate (...)

16:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Science Exchange Series - Sleep to clean your brain Website | More Information
Sleep is a vital biological need. It is crucial for good health, mood stability, and high performance. Despite this, sleep loss and sleep disorder are now global health epidemics. Sleep is a vital state within which your brain ‘cleans house’ and replenishes needed energy. Sleep of poor quality or (...)
Tuesday 28
16:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Science Exchange Series - Chemical toolbox to observe and record the changing world Website | More Information
Science investigates the world in highly methodical ways: and our scientists use different chemical markers to record and observe changes in our environment. This knowledge helps to better understand the past, observe what is happening in our present and aid in the maintenance of our future.

16:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Mathematics and Statistics Colloquium : Control of pedestrian flows: social dynamics beyond modelling Website | More Information
We propose a model-free approach to analyse the movement of pedestrians in experiments and simulations. Using concepts from control and analysis of complex dynamical systems we set up a scheme which allows us to identify dynamical unstable signatures in pedestrian flows. These signatures are the (...)
