Sydney, April 4th 2001
The annual ATNF student symposium is being held on Wednesday 4th of April at ATNF Headquarters, Sydney.
The symposium began in 1998 and was originally designed to allow higher degree students the opportunity to present their research to fellow students and staff.
The idea of the symposium is to provide an informal atmosphere where ATNF affiliated students can present their work and allow ATNF staff and visitors to be informed of current research. There are a number of ways students can present their work:
Attendance is open to all students, staff and visitors of ATNF. Students are invited to submit a short abstract for a 15-20min talk. All students are strongly encouraged to utilise this opportunity to obtain feedback on their research and it is expected by the ATNF that students will attend. It is important to note that these are not formal talks, but rather an opportunity for students to gain experience at public speaking and to provide staff the opportunity to see some of the excellent research being under taken by ATNF students.
Interstate students are particularly encouraged to present their work and teleconference facilities will be available for those that can not present in person.
FacilitiesThe Symposium will take place in the lecture theatre at ATNF's Marsfield headquarters in Sydney. Full use of overhead projectors, slide projector and a proxima has been arranged. Presenters are strongly encouraged to give powerpoint presentation using the ATNF hyperlinks system and discouraged from bringing their own laptops. Daniel Mitchell will provide further information on use of the hyperlink system. People wishing to show non-standard movies or graphics which can not be embedded in powerpoint must arrange with the organisers or other suitable people to do an equipments test in the week before the meeting:- after all you don't want to be caught in the embrassing situation where you turn up for your talk only to discover the computer will not work or we don't have the right sort of connector. Further information with respect to this can be obtained from the organisers.
For those people unable to attend in person, teleconferencing can be arranged. People wishing to present via teleconferencing are asked to submit power point PDF or ps talks via the hyperlink system. The teleconference number is 02 9372 4610 or ex 4610 from ATNF sites.
As part of the program a lunch will be provided for speakers and their guests as well as morning and afternoon tea for all participants. Lunch will be Chicken and Champagne!
Accommodation is the responsibility of the participant. Some accommodation has been reserved for interstate ATNF Students in the Marsfield Lodge, however as always students should be aware that the lodge capacity is limited and operates on a first come first served basis. Further information regarding accommodation bookings for the Marsfield Lodge can be obtained from Narreen Rolph .
For catering & equipment purposes, all people wishing to attend are asked to register by the 21st of March. Students must include a short abstract of their presentation with their registration. Please send this via email to Emma Ryan .
