Who are the conference stakeholders?

Researchers and scientists from CSIRO and other publicly funded organisations. The organisations themselves.

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.

AeRO is the industry association focused on eResearch in Australasia. We play a critical coordination role for our members, who are actively transforming research via Information Technology. Organisations join AeRO to advance their own capabilities and services, to collaborate and to network with peers. AeRO believes researchers and the sector significantly benefit from greater communication, coordination and sharing among the increasingly different and evolving service providers.
