ASMR’s 56th  National Scientific Conference

Science and Survival – equipping you with the tools to further your research career”

Charles Perkins Centre,  November 14th to 15th, 2017

This ground-breaking event features an engaging and exciting new format encompassing both scientific sessions and career development workshops.

In these highly competitive times, the 2017 NSC will provide invaluable insights into:

  • Achieving scientific excellence and
  • Developing sound career strategies using the right tools.

We believe this conference will fulfil an important yet unmet need for the early to mid-career Australian scientific community.

Distinguished Professor Chennupati Jagadish, an eminent transdisciplinary researcher and nanotechnology pioneer, head of the Semiconductor Optoelectronics and Nanotechnology Group at the Australian National University, will deliver the prestigious Edwards Oration.

  • Professor Jagadish’s research on innovative nanotechnologies has huge potential in the field of communications, data storage, solar cells and medical applications.
  • His latest research on neuromorphic cells, “brain on a chip”, is paving the way for a new field in nanotechnology with enormous implications for medical research.
  • Professor Jagadish was awarded Companion of the Order of Australia (AC) last year

We anticipate that this two-day meeting will attract an audience of  researchers from a wide range of disciplins with an emphasis on transdisciplinary research.

Abstracts from all fields of Health and Medical research are welcome!   Register early as places are limited!

Join the NSC this year, survive, thrive and be inspired!
