Invitation to Attend

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the organisers, we invite you to join us at the Collaborative Conference on Computational and Data Intensive Science, 2019 (C3DIS 2018), to be held the week of 6 – 10 May 2019 at the National Convention Centre, Canberra.

C3DIS aims to build a national community of practice of scientists, researchers, and computing, data and information management specialists from publicly funded Australian research organisations. All of these professionals share a common interest: the production of breakthrough science outcomes that require large scale, complex computations and analyses to be carried out over massive data sets.

The theme for C3DIS 2019 is “Understanding the Earth”

More information regarding C3DIS 2019 will continue to be released via the website as planning proceeds.

If you have any questions or suggestions for C3DIS 2019, please do not hesitate to contact the team at Conference Design (

We look forward to seeing you in Canberra.

Why attend?

This conference represents a unique networking opportunity for Australian scientists, researchers and “technology experts” from various domains and organisations to gather, learn from each other’s success stories through the conference sessions. They will also have the opportunity to participate in a variety of technical discussions and workshops, and to listen to leading keynote speakers and participate in stimulating Q&A style panel discussion.

What are we offering participants:

To be informed about the current state of computational and data-intensive science from an Australian context. Hearing from internationally and nationally renowned experts and scientists about their experiences and views of the changing nature of scientific discovery and the impact of eResearch capabilities and platforms on their work. Participants can share and exchange “war stories” and successes, both formally at presentations and at networking opportunities, over the four days of the conference and workshops.

For the technologists and scientists interested in improving their currency and developing their technical skills by participating in up to day long workshops covering both established and emerging areas such as Machine Learning, Visualisation as well as providing introductions to scientific computing and data governance.
