The US-Australia Enabling Technologies Technical Exchange Meeting will be held in Sydney on 23-24 May 2016. This meeting is held under the auspices of the US-Australia Joint Commission Meeting on Science and Technology, the major civil science dialogue between the two countries which is held every two years.
The purpose of this Technical Exchange Meeting is to explore and potentially build basic research collaborations in enabling technologies between the US and Australia and will comprise of three overarching technical thrusts: Materials Science, Physics and Biomedical Sciences.
US participation will include the Department of Defense, other US science agencies, and academic researchers.
Australian researchers are invited to submit abstracts for consideration in the program and should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 25 March 2016.
Once biographies and abstracts are submitted, efforts will be made by the Co-Chairs to identify possible new areas of potential collaboration with the agenda being finalised based on both US and Australian responses.
Selected Australian researchers will be notified, most likely by the third week of April, if they have been chosen for inclusion in the Program and encouraged to attend. Please note that, if selected, attendees are responsible for funding and making their own travel arrangements including lodging.
Further information on the meeting in the attached document and flyer with relevant contacts listed.
This meeting will provide a valuable opportunity for Australian researchers to engage with a wide range of US research agencies and academics and maximise US research collaboration and partnerships.
