    The rapid progress and expansion of computational power will soon reach the exascale, and provide the compute to solve a new class of problems. The enabling science of high-performance computing is computational mathematics: permitting solution to high dimensional problems, improve the efficiency of calculation, and robustly quantify uncertainty.

    Mathēmatica Sōlis et Terrae, an Australian Academy of Science Elizabeth and Frederick White Research Conference, is a two-day research conference. It will bring together a diverse group of disciplines to share challenges and explore synergies in high performance computing simulation in the fields of the solid Earth (geophysics), land-atmosphere carbon exchange (earth systems science), and solar physics.

    The conference will cover topics in numerical analysis (e.g. Galerkin methods, spline-based techniques, sparse-grids, uncertainty quantification and matching layers) and applications in geophysics, Earth system science and solar and astrophysics.

    Mark your diaries for the AIP Summer Meeting, set to take place in Brisbane this December.

    The event was founded in 2017 and takes place every two years, alternating with the AIP Congress.

    This year the meeting will be held at the Queensland University of Technology, running from December 6 to 9. It will be chaired by QUT’s Associate Professor Jennifer MacLeod

    Dr Aaron Tranter 

    Postdoctoral researcher, Australian National University

    Dr Aaron Tranter is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Quantum Science and Technology at the Australian National University. Aaron's current research in CQC2T covers cold atoms as a quantum memory platform, engineering atom-light interactions and machine learning applied to problems in quantum physics.



    Machine learning has been at the forefront of many recent technological improvements. From self-driving cars, to biomedical imaging and even personal assistants, machine learning techniques allow us to process data in a way unlike before. One of the key performers in this area is deep learning, using structures modelled after neural connections found in the brain. In parallel, we have seen the rise of quantum technology, offering advantages over classical technology such as superior sensing, faster computing, and provably secure communications. But building and controlling this technology is a challenging endeavour. We will cover the application of machine learning to quantum systems, examining how these powerful techniques can serve as a useful tool for researchers and engineers, uncovering potentially new and exciting phenomena. We will also detail how we have already been able to demonstrate a deep learning approach overturning the best human intuition for cooling atoms using lasers, automatically aligning lasers, and helping researchers examine atomic scale images.

    Due to covid-19 the 2021 conference has been delayed / postponed till the 7-10th of March 2022.

    Theme of the ARPS 2022 conference is ‘Legacy and Innovation in Radiation Protection’.
    The aim of the conference is to enrich the understanding of non-ionising and ionising radiation safety, highlight the importance of effective communication and stakeholder involvement on radiation safety, highlight new technologies and generate discussion across a broad range of radiation protection aspects looking to the past as well at the future. The Organising Committee is keen to put together a full and extensive program, which will include three days of scientific sessions.
    This is a wonderful opportunity to be involved in this conference. Please join us in Canberra and support ARPS as it delivers the best and most recent radiation protection information to delegates.

    The organising committee looks forward to welcome you to the 35th International Conference on the Physics of Semiconductors (ICPS) to be held Sunday 26 June – Friday 1 July 2022 at the International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney), Australia. This biennial meeting is the premier forum for reporting all aspects of semiconductor physics including electronic, structural, optical, magnetic and transport properties. The conference will reflect the state of the art in semiconductor physics with a heritage dating back to the 1950s.

    ICC Sydney is located in the heart of one of Australia’s most spectacular cities and is perched directly on the stunning Sydney Harbour. ICPS 2022 attendees will be able to travel by ferry to many of the scenic attractions of Sydney, including Manly Beach, Luna Park and the famous Taronga Zoo, with Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House a short stroll away.

    We encourage you to save the dates in your calendar and register your expression of interest today to be kept up to date with the latest information and program news.
