Promoting the role of Physics in research, education, industry and the community
AIP Annual Physics in Industry Days
The annual Physics in Industry Days has been an initiative to bring together researchers, industry, service providers, decision makers, educators and the general public to connect and learn around a chosen topic - either an industry sector or an area of science with significant industrial or national impact in the future. It is intended to be an informal gathering with interesting and informative speakers pitched at a level to engage with an informed general audience. Hosted at CSIRO at Lindfield, the program for the day builds in time to network as well as engage in a site tour to experience first-hand some of the research and development conducted on site by CSIRO, the National Measurement Institute (NMI) or on of the high-tech companies co-located at the Lindfield Collaboration Hub (LCH) .
2023 Physics in Industry Day:
The Future of Semiconductors
The Australian Institute of Physics partners with the CSIRO in an annual "Physics in Industry Day" to explore and promote the role of physics in industry and the community.
In 2023, our topic will explore how Australia can arrest the decline of the semiconductor industry by exploiting niche manufacturing and exploiting unconventional applications.
What are the discussion topics?
Session 1: The Current State of the Australian Semiconductor Industry
Session 2: Unconventional Applications of Semiconductors
Session 3: Future Opportunities
REGISTRATION is FREE, but REQUIRED at: TBD
8:30-9:00 Registration - Arrival, registration, refreshments
9:00 Welcome & Keynote
9:40 The Current State of the Australian Semiconductor Industry
