The call for abstracts for the Summer Meeting is now open. We are excited to offer this conference as a ‘cheap and cheerful’ opportunity on our off-Congress years. All welcome and we especially hope to see lots of our students and ECR members there.
Senior Instrument Scientist and neutron-scattering expert Helen
Maynard-Casely’s Women in Physics Lecture Tour has finished after a mammoth 40+
lectures! I attended her talk in Canberra and loved going on a journey through
the amazing crystals of solar system. I was so impressed by her storytelling
skills. More below.
Congratulations also to Pegah Maasoumi, who
has been touring around Queensland spreading the word about foldable mobile
phones, Ironman’s suit and solar panel winners on the John Mainstone Youth
National Science Week was again a success
last month and featured everything from coffee in space with our Australian
Physics co-editor Davis Hoxley, the Einstein Lecture with Elisabetta
Barberio, and a look at whether bigger telescopes are always better, with
Richard de Grijs. Well done to everyone who helped to spread the word about physics
during the week.
Congratulations to the Dark Matter Particle
Physics team with the announcement of their Centre of Excellence. More below.
Congratulations as well to all winners at
last week’s Eureka Prizes. While seven physicists were finalists this year, sadly
none walked away with a trophy. Next year!
Also this month: Register your interest for
the International Conference on the Physics of Semiconductors 2020; Virginia
Trimble receives cultural award in physics; meet Jane Turner – our September Hidden
Physicist; and find an opportunity in our Jobs Corner.
