9:30 - EVENT - Open Access Week events - Oct 19-25 Website | More Information
October 19-25 is International Open Access Week. Come and join in some of the events organised by the Library, to learn why UWA researchers are increasingly making their publications openly available and the individual, institutional and community benefits to doing so. Events include: * Two webinars with UWA researchers * A workshop to explain the ways to make your publications and datasets open access * Individual bookable consultations with a librarian to help you 'Find Your Open Access Pathway'

All events are bookable through the website: https://guides.library.uwa.edu.au/openaccesstoolkit/oaweek

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 building blocks for crowd control and soft management of people. Our approach is entirely data driven and we provide a proof of concept by field and laboratory experiments. In addition, our approach provides, based on experimental observations, quantitative benchmarks to judge the quality of mathematical models for pedestrian motion.

13:00 - SEMINAR - Evaluating Auditory function in children with learning difficulties (Please note date change to 27 October, NOT 20th) : School of Human Sciences Seminar Series Website | More Information
Abstract: Children who experience poor academic performance at school have been d escribed as having learning difficulties (LD). These children are thought to show reduced performances in reading, written language and numeracy, and/or to be inactive and inefficient learners. Hearing is one of several factors thought to influence a child’s learning at school with students spending at least 45% of their classroom activities that require listening and 45 - 75% of their time in the classroom comprehending their teachers’ and classmates’ speech. Hearing impairment can include loss of hearing sensitivity and/or impaired auditory processing. While rates of peripheral hearing loss in the Australian primary school-aged population is estimated to be between 3.4% - 12.8%, rates of impaired auditory processing in this population are not available in Australia. Children with peripheral hearing loss and/or impaired auditory processing often show behaviours similar to those reported in children with LD, suggesting that LD and hearing impairment could be related in primary school child populations. This seminar will present the research that investigated LD and hearing impairment in a school-aged child population in the greater Brisbane region of Queensland, Australia.

Bio: Robyn is a lecturer in Audiology in School of Human Sciences. Robyn’s current area of research is auditory processing disorder and middle ear assessment in the paediatric population. In particular, Robyn is passionate about improving educational outcomes in children with learning difficulties who may have a hearing impairment. Robyn’s other research interests also include using simulated learning in clinical education and tele-audiology. Clinically, Robyn specialises in middle ear and Central Auditory Processing assessment and management in the paediatric population.

8:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Creating Crops for the Future: Challenges, Technology and Sustainable Solutions : A special International Plantae Webinar (online) Website | More Information
One of the most urgent scientific challenges of the 21st century lies in ensuring that we have enough food for the growing global population. Join us for this special event where three experts in the field of plant science, including recently named GCHERA World Agriculture Prize Laureate Professor Pamela Ronald, will speak on how scientists are advancing sustainable crops and biotechnologies to make world food security a reality.

Join Moderator Professor John Evans (ARC Centre of Excellence for Translational Photosynthesis) in a unique forum for discussion about how critical and complex issues can be addressed, including water and land scarcity, climate change, the role of genetic engineering and other modern agricultural technologies and the importance of interdisciplinary approaches.

This event is presented by Plantae, and co-hosted by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Translational Photosynthesis and the ARC Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology.

Note: November 11, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm Australia East Coast Daylight Time (AEDT UTC+11), which is November 10, 7:00-9:00 pm EST, 4:00-6:00 pm PST

14:00 - SEMINAR - When sharing isn't caring: a panel discussion on de-identifying data Website | More Information
Are you sure you want to share that data? What else is your data exposing? Researchers in a range of different fields need to de-identify or anonymise their data for a range of reasons. Join in this online panel discussion to hear how UWA researchers address these issues and more.
