September 25, 2017 - September 30, 2017
Please find a draft program here.
PRISM and MAEMOD are running a joint workshop to foster and enhance research collaboration between the two groups and develop shared training opportunities.
The 5 day workshop will consist of two days focused on training and three days on collaborative research opportunities.
Delivery of training will be trialled using a “clinic drop-in” model, whereby workshop attendees will be given the opportunity to present a problem and/or request help with certain modelling techniques during the workshop (proposals to be submitted to the organisers ahead of the workshop, 1 page A4 limit). Teams of researchers (junior and senior) will then tackle these problems over a number of days, before reporting back or delivering training classes on those topics of interest.
The research focussed sessions will consist of invited and contributed talks with significant time set aside for discussion. Major topics for focus are:
Through its student and post-doctoral support schemes, PRISM will offer financial support to core PRISM members interested in attending the workshops, subject to applicants’ successful articulation of the relevance and likely benefits of attendance.
All others (PRISM affiliates, MAEMOD staff, colleagues and affiliates) are welcome to attend the workshop at no charge, but must self-fund. Video conferencing facilities will be made available wherever possible for people unable to attend in person to participate in the workshop. Please mention if this is your preference upon registration.
EOI’s including clinic questions (1 page A4 maximum!) should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 28th of July 2017 5pm Australian Eastern Standard Time. Registration requests should be sent to the same email address no later than the 25th of August 2017 5pm Australian Eastern Standard Time.
