12:35 - EVENT - Quick fixes or here to stay? The COVID-19 overhaul of Australia’s social safety net Website | More Information
The health and economic crises caused by COVID-19 have had devastating consequences for thousands of Australians. There have been differential impacts across society. Before COVID-19, 3.24 million people in Australia were living below the poverty line. These numbers are likely to swell with growing unemployment, challenges redeploying large sections of the workforce, and added pressure on the charity and non-for-profit sector.

At the same time, we have seen unprecedented changes to welfare policy that have brought renewed attention to the shortcomings of the current system and opened new debates about the role of the welfare system, how to meet growing demand and how to pay for it.

This policy event, co-hosted with Anglicare WA, will bring together key experts and researchers, front-line service providers and policymakers to take stock of how the Government’s COVID-19 measures have reshaped its social policies; to analyse their effectiveness and long-term effects; to examine the gendered nature of the policy responses; and to take a look at what Australia’s social safety net may look like in 2021 and beyond.

8:00 - CONFERENCE - Second International Conference on Underground Mining Technology : The Australian Centre for Geomechanics is delighted to host the Second International Conference on Underground Mining Technology (UMT 2020) Online and in Perth, Australia, 3–4 November 2020. Website | More Information
Due to the ongoing drive for safer and more productive and economical mines, there is a need for the practical application of existing technology and the continual development of new technology. In recent years, a vast amount of technology development has changed the landscape of mining geomechanics discipline. Photogrammetric methods and laser measurement technology allows geotechnical engineers to gather data not possible before, and the development in drone technology allows them to gather this data in areas previously not accessible.

Integrated underground communications systems allow for seamless real-time integration, and personnel tracking systems allow for better assessment and management of exposure to geotechnical hazards. Geotechnical engineers now have data at higher resolution with wider coverage not possible before. However, effective decisions can only be made if data is turned into information, and knowledge derived from it. This conference will provide a forum to present and discuss new technologies and explore practical ways of implementing and expanding these new technologies to maximise their value within the underground mining environment.
