15:00 - SEMINAR - Let There Be Light: The Observational Quest for the First Galaxies : A seminar by Prof. Richard Ellis (European Southern Observatory/University College London) as part of the de Laeter colloquium series (joint ICRAR/CASS event) Website | More Information
The first billion years after the Big Bang represent the final observational frontier in assembling a coherent picture of cosmic history. During this period early stars and galaxies formed and the Universe became bathed in ultraviolet light. Hydrogen in the intergalactic medium also transitioned (...)

9:30 - Masterclass - Earthquakes - How predictable are they? : A masterclass with Margaret Boettcher, Associate Professor of Geophysics, University of New Hampshire. Website | More Information
While earthquake predictability is poorly understood, some faults have more regular seismicity than others. Earthquakes on oceanic transform faults exhibit many of the most systematic and predictable behaviors known in seismology and therefore provide a window into earthquake forecasting on (...)

18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - A Cosmic Shooting Gallery : A public lecture by 2017 ATSE Eminent Speaker Professor Phil Bland, Department of Applied Geology, Curtin University. Website | More Information
The Earth sits in a cosmic shooting gallery. Phil will talk about the window that the Desert Fireball Network gives us on asteroid impacts, and how the project might change our understanding of how planetary systems form. It will look at the journey that these rocks have taken, from their origins (...)

18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Numerical Modelling and Imaging in Geophysics at Different Scales: applications to the pyrenees chain and the subsurface/laboratory scale : A public lecture by Dr. Roland Martin, senior research scientist at the National Centre for Scientific Research, Université Paul Sabatier – Toulouse 3, France. Website | More Information
In this lecture Dr Martin will present different high order numerical tools using finite-difference or finite element approaches to propagate seismic waves in a wide variety of Earth structures at different scales in order, in the near future, to couple them through different physics related to (...)
Wednesday 19
14:00 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Quantum Correlations, especially entanglement and discord More Information
I will discuss some topics in quantum information, both for two-level systems (qubits) and higher dimensional ones. Correlation such as entanglement and quantum discord are being discussed for applications in quantum cryptography and computation. I will discuss the basic quantum physics behind (...)
Thursday 20
11:30 - SEMINAR - ICRAR Seminar : MeerKATs with Big IDIAs: How Data-Intensive Astronomy is bringing the Research Cloud to Africa More Information
In 2018, the 64 dish MeerKAT radio interferometer will begin full operations, thereby propelling the South African astronomy community into the era of Big Data. In this talk I will give a brief overview of the key science projects that will be running on MeerKAT, as well discuss the role of the (...)
Wednesday 26
12:00 - SEMINAR - The Physics of Bicycles : What makes a bicycle stable? More Information
Since a spinning bicycle wheel is the canonical example of angular momentum, many physicists believe that angular momentum is important to the stability of a bicycle. However, it has been known for a long time that this is not so; angular momentum plays only a very minor role in maintaining bicycle (...)

14:00 - SEMINAR - Fundamental Tests with Antihydrogen Atoms : Experiments with trapped anithydrogen atoms More Information
Motivated by the baryogenesis problem (the scarcity of antimatter in the University), CERN's ALPHA collaboration has been studying the properties of antihydrogen atoms. Since 2010, we have been able to trap nearly 10000 antiatoms, and have kept some trapped for as long as 1000s. We have measured (...)

Monday 07
15:00 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : Title: Ultrafast and Very Small: Discover Nanoscale Magnetism With Picosecond Time Resolution Using X-Rays More Information
Today’s magnetic device technology is based on complex magnetic alloys or multilayers that are patterned at the nanoscale and operate at gigahertz frequencies. To better understand the behaviour of such devices one needs an experimental approach that is capable of detecting magnetization with (...)

15:00 - SEMINAR - “Multiscale model reduction for flows in heterogeneous porous media” More Information
Abstract We combine discrete empirical interpolation techniques, global mode decomposition methods, and local multiscale methods, to reduce the computational complexity associated with nonlinear flows in highly heterogeneous porous media. The resulting reduced-order approach enables a significant (...)
Thursday 19
13:00 - FREE LECTURE - Discussions on New Discoveries in Gravitational Wave Search : This lecture will discuss the progress of gravitational wave discoveries. More Information
The first detection of gravitational waves from binary black holes was made in September 2015. This not only confirmed Einstein’s 1915 general theory of relativity, but also marked the beginning of a new era of gravitational wave astronomy. In recognition of the promising revolutionary effect of (...)
Friday 20
13:00 - TALK - Mathematics Meets Art: Early Renaissance Art and the Need for Perspective Website | More Information
Not only did the early Renaissance painters seek to improve their methods of spatial illusionism, they believed that sophisticated knowledge of geometry was integral. Leon Battista Alberti (1435) believed the first requirement of a painter was to know geometry, whereas Piero Della Francesca went to (...)
Wednesday 25
11:00 - WORKSHOP - NHMRC Project Grant Workshop More Information
This workshop will help those new to applying for Project Grants to plan their application. We'll also cover how applications are assessed, with input from a recent Grant Review Panel member. RSVP: Via Eventbrite
