The Flinders Centre for NanoScale Science and Technology's 7th Annual Conference was hosted on Tuesday 13 June 2017, at Flinders University's Tonsley campus.
Professor John Beynon, Executive Dean of the College of Science and Engineering, welcomed members to the conference, before handing over to Centre Director Professor David Lewis who commenced the conference.
The main proceedings of the day included keynote presentations from Professor Paul Mulvaney, on his work within the ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science at the University of Melbourne, and Professor Martin Westwell from the Flinders Centre for Science Education in the 21st Century on "The Art of Science Communication".
Attendees also heard from the Centre's research leaders, who all presented summaries of their current research in a series of "3 Minute Thesis" style presentations. The research leader presentations were judged on the day, with the audience voting Dr. Justin Chalker's presentation as the crowd favourite.
Lunch was followed by a poster session, where Centre members were able to present their own work to their peers as well as to the Centre's research leaders and advisory board. This was followed by a professional development excercise on developing infographics, hosted by Professor Westwell. Centre members worked in teams to produce an infographic, before presenting their work.
The conference concluded with a prize for best poster, judged by members of the Centre's Advisory Board, and time for informal networking. Zoe Pettifer was awarded with the prize for best poster.
