Science at the Shine Dome 2013
Canberra, Wednesday – Friday | 29 – 31 May 2013

Registrations are now open for the Australian Academy of Science’s annual meeting Science at the Shine Dome. This highlight of the annual science calendar in Australia includes a special program for early career researchers (ECRs). We define ECRs as researchers who are less than 15 years after the completion of their PhD, and PhD students are also welcome to register for the event.

The $495 ECR registration package includes all the following activities:

On Day 1 you will learn about the latest research across a range of science disciplines with the New Fellows seminars and network with science teachers and Fellows of the Academy around an informal dinner. On Day 2 you will hear about the cutting-edge work of the 2013 Academy Awardees and participate in one of the career development workshops:

- Media and communicating science presented by Dr Paul Willis, Director of RiAus
- Grant writing and how to find funding opportunities presented by Dr Aurore Delaigle and Dr Ulrike Mathesius
- Successful scientific collaborations presented by Associate Professor Christopher Adam Blake and Dr Benjamin Kile.

In the evening you will attend the formal annual dinner with Academy Fellows and Honorific Awards winners. This year our dinner speaker is Sir David King FRS FAA, former UK Chief Scientist. The symposium to be held on day 3, Power to the people: the science behind the debate, will explore the science behind a hot topic: the future of power generation and supply in Australia and worldwide.

 Ask your group leader / manager / supervisor to support your participation!

The full program for Science at the Shine Dome (29-31 May 2013) can be found atwww.science.org.au/events/sats/sats2013/ and online registration is available atwww.science.org.au/events/sats/sats2013/registration.html
