The ARC has released funding rules for two Industrial Transformation Research Program (ITRP) schemes: Research Hubs and Training Centres. Proposals will open on 6 November, and close on 18 December.  

Industrial Transformation Research Hubs
The Industrial Transformation Research Hubs scheme will engage researchers in issues facing the new industrial economies and training the future workforce. This scheme will support collaborative research activity between the Australian higher education sector and industry designed to focus on strategic outcomes not independently realisable.

Industrial Transformation Training Centres
Industrial Transformation Training Centres fosters close partnerships between university-based researchers and other research end-users to provide innovative Higher Degree by Research (HDR) and postdoctoral training for the end-user focused research industries vital to Australia’s future.
For more information and advice, contact Steven Hermans.

Open data and content mining
Should data used in scientific articles be available to all? Are we losing opportunities - and dollars - by not being able to extract and re-use names, numbers, places, chemicals, organisms, graphs and tables in published articles?
Should data used in scientific articles be available to all? Are we losing opportunities - and dollars - by not being able to extract and re-use names, numbers, places, chemicals, organisms, graphs and tables in published articles?

Peter Murray-Rust (University of Cambridge and Open Knowledge Foundation) believes so. In this seminar he'll outline why he thinks we need to change to an open access model and how it can be done.

Find out more about the seminar.

When: 2pm, October 31 2012
Where: Seminar Room, Level 2, Fisher Library

4th IPOS Symposium: Low Frequency Photonics - bridging the gap
Are you interested in optics and photonics? This symposium will  focus on optical physics and technology, application and future directions in the mid-infrared, terahertz waves and microwave regions of the electromagnetic spectrum.
Are you interested in optics and photonics?

This symposium will focus on optical physics and technology, application and future directions in the mid-infrared, terahertz waves and microwave regions of the electromagnetic spectrum.
 
Organised by the Institute of Photonics and Optical Science (IPOS), the symposium will bring together researchers from Australia and around the world in the fields of photonics and optics.
 
A key goal of the symposium is to seek ways to "bridge the gap" between near infrared photonics and the optics at these longer wavelength regions critical to many existing and future applications.

Details
When: 9.00am - 5.00pm, 5 & 6 November 2012.
Where: Webster Theatre, Veterinary Science Conference Centre, Camperdown Campus
Cost: Free
