13:00 - SEMINAR - FASE lunchtime seminar : Exploring the links between education research, scholarly teaching and the improvement of student learning More Information
In this talk, Jenni draws on more than a decade of education research and teaching in chemical engineering to focus on the central issue of improving student learning in engineering education.

Illustrating these points through a range of innovations at the 2nd year level in chemical (...)

13:00 - SEMINAR - A Bird's Eye View of Sleep : School of Anatomy, Physiology & Human Biology Seminar Series Website | More Information
The Seminar: In mammals, including humans, there are two types of sleep. The function of the brain activity underlying these states, called rapid eye movement (REM) sleep and non-REM sleep, is an unresolved question in biology. Natural interspecific variation in sleep can constitute a powerful (...)

Groups and Combinatorics Seminar

Tomasz Popiel (UWA)

will speak on

A class of abundant p-singular elements in finite classical groups

at 11am on Wednesday 18th of April in MLR2

Abstract: Elements with order divisible by certain primes have (...)

13:20 - Forum - Bioenergy Forum : The Energy and Minerals Institute along with the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry are pleased to invite you to The University of Western Australia’s Bioenergy Forum Website | More Information


Microalgae Energy Farms for Low Cost Biodiesel Production Presented by Dr Peer Schenk

ABSTRACT: From start to finish, biodiesel production from microalgae requires optimisation of all steps towards cost effectiveness and energy efficiency, as current limitations exist mainly (...)
Thursday 19
12:00 - TALK - SPEAKER Mike Webster "Adding years to your life (or at least looking like it) – adaptation and the perception of facial age" : The perceived characteristics of a face can be strongly biased by adaptation to faces seen previously More Information
The perceived characteristics of a face can be strongly biased by adaptation to faces seen previously. These aftereffects have been found for many of the attributes characterizing natural variations in the face including identity, gender, and expression. We are exploring the impact of adaptation on (...)

13:00 - SEMINAR - ECM Faculty Seminar : A social realist approach to researching student learning in higher education: exploring engineering education More Information
Many contemporary concerns in higher education focus on the student experience of learning. With a larger and much more diverse intake than ever before at the same time that funding for higher education is being cut back in some parts of the world and at least limited elsewhere, questions are being (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - Spatial and temporal heterogeneity of zooplankton communities in freshwater systems: the importance of high resolution data : SESE and Oceans Institute Seminar More Information
Heterogeneity within aquatic ecosystems influences many vital ecosystem processes, and as such its investigation is fundamental to understanding ecological interactions within planktonic systems. Teasing apart the layers of heterogeneity within any environment is, however, hindered by the problem (...)

16:00 - VISITING SPEAKER - A universal code for RNA-protein recognition : PLEASE NOTE TIME CHANGE !!! Previously 1pm, now 4pm. More Information
RNA-protein complexes play essential roles in the regulation of gene expression, by orchestrating the basic growth and maintenance of the cell as well as the complex developmental programs of multicellular eukaryotes. The modes by which proteins bind RNA are diverse and often difficult to predict (...)
Friday 20
12:00 - Priming Grant - Discovery Research – Priming Grants 2012, Call for Research into Melanoma Website | More Information
The Scott Kirkbride Melanoma Research Centre (SKMRC), based within the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research (WAIMR), is dedicated to enhancing outcomes for people with melanoma by conducting high quality medical research.

The Centre was established in memory of young Perth (...)

Thursday 26
10:00 - WORKSHOP - Masterclass: Endoscopic optical imaging technologies : Integrating endoscopic confocal and OCT imaging technologies into biomedical research Website | More Information
The focus of this IAS Masterclass will be on advances in instrumentation for biomedical optical imaging. We will see how improvements in fibre optics, wavelength-swept lasers and miniature optical components improve the resolution, acquisition speed and signal to noise ratio of single fibre (...)

12:00 - TALK - SPEAKER Chiara Fiorentini "Perceiving facial expressions. Insights from normal population and autism" : Talk by Dr Chiara Fiorentini More Information
We are incredibly fluent in perceiving emotions from facial expressions and this ability plays an important role in our everyday social interactions. However, the exact cognitive mechanisms underlying this ability are still unclear. In my talk, I will focus on a few studies in which I have (...)

13:10 - PERFORMANCE - Lunchtime Concert : UWA Vocal Students Website | More Information
