9:00 - EVENT - Introductory Statistics More Information
The aim of this course is to introduce you to basic statistics. It will cover descriptive statistics (means and standard deviations); data exploration; basic categorical data analysis; simple linear regression and basic analysis of variance (ANOVA). The statistical package SPSS will be used to illustrate the ideas demonstrated. The course will be held in a computer laboratory allowing participants to immediately apply the material covered through a series of practical examples.

16:00 - SEMINAR - Mathematics and Statistics colloquium : Nonlocal equations, atom dislocation dynamics in crystals, and chaotic orbits More Information
In this talk, we introduce some basics of nonlocal equations, with some applications in mind coming from physics and material sciences. In particular, the equation taken into account comes from a model, developed by Rudolf Peierls and Frank Nabarro, that describes the edge dislocation of atoms in an ideal crystal. Moreover, we present the construction of multibump, heteroclinic, homoclinic and chaotic trajectories, providing a symbolic dynamics in this framework.

17:30 - PUBLIC TALK - Joseph Gentilli Memorial Lecture : Global Suburbanisms and Governance Website | More Information
The majority of the world's population now live in urban areas. Prof. Brendan Gleeson, University of Melbourne, has suggested that we are living in an era of homo urbanis. However, it is arguably more accurate to describe the human species as homo suburbanis, since it is the suburbs where most city dwellers in western liberal democracies actually live. This is certainly true of Australia's captial cities which are home to 80% of the national population.

In this, the 2018 Joseph Gentilli Lecture, the 'scholar of suburbia', Professor Roger Keil, York University (Toronto, Canada), will argue that we need to acknowledge suburbanisation as a global process and develop a more robust understanding of the governance of suburbanisation if we are to make sense of the cities in which we currently live, and will inherit in the future. This necessitates comprehending the modalities of the state, capital accumulation and the rise of private forms of governance amongst other things.

This lecture - 'Global Suburbanisms and Governance' - is informed by a multi-year global research programme on suburban goverance led by Prof. Keil, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, and a focus on suburbs, suburbia and suburbanization in Africa, North America, Europe, South Asia, and China. The empirical foundation of the lecture is Canada and thus offers ideas and lessons on the goverance of Australian suburbanisation.

For more information on Prof Roger Keil and the Global Suburbanisms project visit - https://suburbs.info.yorku.ca/about-us/our-research/

The lecture will be held in the Woolnough Lecture Theatre, Geography/Geology Building, and commence at 6.00pm. Please aim to arrive by 5.30pm so the lecture can commence on time.

The Geography and Planning group look forward to welcoming you to UWA and the 2018 Joseph Gentilli Memorial Lecture.

12:00 - SEMINAR - Bayliss Seminar series : Ozren Bogdanovic: Don't lose your inheritance: Retention of paternal epigenetic memory in the developing teleost germline More Information
Abstract: Two waves of DNA methylation reprogramming occur during mammalian embryogenesis; during preimplantation development and during primordial germ cell (PGC) formation. However, it is currently unclear how evolutionarily conserved these processes are. Here we characterize the DNA methylomes of zebrafish PGCs at four developmental stages and identify retention of paternal epigenetic memory, in stark contrast to the process in mammals. Gene expression profiling of zebrafish PGCs at the same developmental stages revealed that the embryonic germline is defined by a small number of markers that display strong developmental stage-specificity and that are independent of DNA methylation-mediated regulation. We identified promoters that are specifically targeted by DNA methylation in somatic and germline tissues during vertebrate embryogenesis and that are frequently misregulated in human cancers. Together, these detailed epigenome and transcriptome maps of the zebrafish germline provide novel insights into vertebrate epigenome reprogramming and enhance our understanding of the relationships between germline fate acquisition and oncogenesis.
Tuesday 11
12:00 - SEMINAR - Bayliss Seminar series:Crystal structure prediction and functional materials discovery : Crystal structure prediction and functional materials discovery: Peter Spackman More Information
Abstract: Crystal structure prediction (CSP) can provide invaluable insight and direction for the discovery and creation of functional materials, and is a prime example of high-throughput, large scale calculations on high performance computing (HPC) systems. This talk will focus on current methods for crystal structure prediction employed in the Day group at the University of Southampton, and their application to the goals of the LRC centre for functional materials design, examining several molecular and their porous (and dense) forms.

18:30 - SCREENING - ‘Dying to Live’ screening 12/12/18 Windsor Cinema : Life on the organ donation waiting list Website | More Information
The Lions Eye Institute is hosting a screening of the ‘Dying to Live’ documentary on December 12th at the Windsor Cinema in Nedlands. The documentary delves into life on the organ donation waiting list, the complex world of organ and tissue transplantation and the heart-wrenching stories of real people awaiting life-saving organs in Australia, when the only thing standing between them and death is the kindness of a stranger. The documentary is compelling and moving in covering a topic so many of us never talk about, but need to. Tickets can be purchased using this link: https://tickets.demand.film/event/6495QJKWKBJE

17:00 - SEMINAR - Free GAMSAT Strategy Session With An Expert : Get insight into efficient preparation & strategies relevant to GAMSAT-level practice questions in this free problem-based seminar provided by Gold Standard GAMSAT. Website | More Information
Gauge your readiness for the GAMSAT! We'll be providing free handouts with sample practice questions. You will then be asked to take a short timed practice test followed by a discussion of the worked solutions.

Our GAMSAT free seminars are like mini versions of our live attendance courses. We focus on teaching the most important strategies for each section rather than a mere overview of the GAMSAT.

Note: It is not necessary to be using Gold Standard GAMSAT products in order to attend this free GAMSAT seminar. You will receive a free handout but please bring some writing paper.

The Gold Standard GAMSAT textbooks are available at the UWA Co-op Bookshop as well as at www.gamsat-prep.com.

12:00 - FREE LECTURE - Community of Practice Lunch and Learn : Amazing opportunity to learn about virtual reality with your colleagues from throughout the University More Information
UWA academics are cordially invited to the inaugural ‘Lunch & Learn’ event run by our new UWA ‘Teaching Innovations’ Community of Practice. The focus of this event will be VR in Higher Education. The event will be held on Wednesday 30th January, 2019 from 12 noon to 1.30pm in the Fay Gale Studio (formerly the Carpe Diem Studio) in the Educational Enhancement Unit.

This informal 90 minute session will include insights into the AR, VR and Mixed Reality programs currently enhancing student learning across the university, and a panel discussion at the end. The aim is to share expertise in this area across disciplines and to inspire others to consider incorporating VR into teaching to enhance student engagement and outcomes. This will be a supportive environment where you will be encouraged to engage in cross-disciplinary interaction and collaboration.

Lunch will be provided. Please rsvp for catering purposes by 28 January 2019 to: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/community-of-practice-innovation-lunch-learn-tickets-55144112525?utm_source=eb_email&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=new_event_email&utm_term=viewmyevent_button
