13:00 - SEMINAR - HPC Seminar: Why HPC is crucial to understanding how galaxies form More Information
Supercomputer simulations have played a transformative role over the last 30 years in establishing the paradigms of the growth of cosmic structure and galaxy formation. Theoretically they allow us to tackle problems that are otherwise intractable analytically, such as predicting the structure of the cosmic web and the internal properties of galaxies. Observationally they allow us to build virtual universes that allow us to interpret the results of large galaxy surveys. I'll review what goes into one of these simulations, explaining why and how supercomputers have proven to be crucial. I'll also highlight key predictions from simulations and identify areas where more work is needed as we enter the era of SKA-science.

17:30 - TALK - Tech Talk 0x08 - Configuration Management and the Death of System Administration Website | More Information
Configuration management and the death of system administration (we have systems to do that now) presented by Luke Williams.

Being a sysadmin is hard work. You maintain complex, changing systems using an arcane library of command-line incantations to inspect and modify elaborate configurations. Quick fixes congeal into messes of dirty undocumented hacks. Repetitive tasks are traditionally automated with scripts: sequences of commands where every line is a potential point of failure that can leave the system in an unknown state to be painstakingly resolved by hand.

Configuration management (CM) takes the mystery out of system administration. Instead of explicitly listing steps that (hopefully)result in the desired system state, a high-level description of the desired state is processed by the CM platform to determine the steps to reach it, using package adapters to reason about the current system state and generate commands to alter it.

In this talk I'll introduce Puppet, a mature configuration management platform with adapters for thousands of server applications, and Vagrant, an automatic VM provisioning tool that we can use with puppet to effortlessly spin up new environments. We'll see how a single command can rebuild an entire system, how version control makes rolling back to a previous state as simple as checking out a revision and how to use layering to avoid duplicating configuration information common to your servers.

If you'd like to follow along with your laptop, I'll be around the clubroom half an hour before the talk helping people get set up. Hope to see you there!

16:00 - SEMINAR - Water Sensitive Cities Seminar Series - August 2013 : The inaugural seminar of the Water Sensitive Cities Seminar Series for the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities (Western Region). More Information
Scope: How do you creatively plan for a population of 62 million by 2100? Australia’s current major city planning frameworks only account for an extra 5.5 million people. Whether we want a ‘Big Australia’ or not, Australia’s 21st century is likely to see rapid and continual growth – if we want liveable, high performance cities and regional centres we need to think outside the box.

Speaker: Dr Julian Bolleter is an Assistant Professor at the Australian Urban Design Research Centre (AUDRC) at the University of Western Australia. His role at the AUDRC includes teaching a master’s program in urban design and conducting urban design research and design projects.

Julian and his colleague Richard Weller have recently completed a book entitled ‘Made in Australia: The Future of Australian Cities’, which scopes the urban implications of Australia’s population reaching 62.2m by 2101.

Event: This is the inaugural seminar of the Water Sensitive Cities Seminar Series for the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities (Western Region), facilitating knowledge sharing amongst CRC-WSC participants and the wider community.

Following the seminar, light refreshments will be served from 5:00pm in the nearby foyer of the School of Environmental Systems Engineering. A map of the venues and parking may be found at https://goo.gl/maps/KsFBJ

For further information please contact [email protected]

We look forward to welcoming you.

14:00 - SEMINAR - Image Processing with Mathematica More Information
Mathematica exhibits a comprehensive set of state-of-the-art image processing and analysis functions for two and three-dimensional image composition, segmentation, feature detection, transformation, alignment, and restoration. The talk will touch several image processing application areas and demonstrate how Mathematica's fully integrated, powerful mathematical capabilities aid the rapid prototyping of image processing algorithms. We will also show how to implement dynamic and interactive interfaces for routines that require manual intervention and how to incorporate Java, C/C++, and GPU-code in the Mathematica programming language.

Dr. Markus van Almsick studied theoretical physics at the Technical University of Munich, Germany, and biomedical image analysis at the Technical University of Eindhoven, the Netherlands. He has held positions at the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign) and the Max-Planck Institute for Biophysics in Frankfurt, working on loop quantum gravity, isomer enumeration, stochastic line propagation models in image processing, and on high angular resolution diffusion imaging. For 25 years he has been a consultant to Wolfram Research Inc., contributing code to Mathematica, promoting the software with talks about scientific applications, and showing researchers how to solve their problems using Mathematica.

8:30 - WORKSHOP - CS4HS - Computer Science for High School Website | More Information
The School of Computer Science and Software Engineering at The University of Western Australia, with generous support from Google, is holding a CS4HS workshop in September 26-27 at UWA. The workshop is free and aimed at helping K-12 teachers (both pre- and in- service teachers) and educators learn more about using ICT through hands-on activities, presentations, sharing of innovative teaching and discussions with other educators, industry speakers, and UWA researchers. In particular, we will demonstrate how teachers can encourage learners to think and analyse a particular topic through use of ICT/CS. The workshop requires no previous programming experience.
