The Australian Academy of Science invites EMCRs and PhD students who wish to attend the workshop to complete the expression of interest form. This form also includes details required to apply for a mobility grant and to be considered to present a 10-minute talk.

Successful applicants will be notified by mid-October, upon which a registration fee of $30 will be requested from participants to offset costs associated with running the event.

Registration includes attendance and catering at all three days of the workshop, as well as attendance to the networking event at the end of day one.

To help you prepare for the online registration we recommend you read the expression of interest template to preview the questions.
