Open Science Conference 2017


The Red Sea Research Center (RSRC) Open Science Conference 2017 is an inaugural student and postdoc-led departmental seminar.

This conference aims to provide a low-stress and friendly platform for all RSRC students, postdocs, research technicians and research scientists to showcase their work (at varying stages of completion and/or success). Published something interesting? Let us know! Gotten stuck with an intractable problem? Perhaps a member of the audience would be able to suggest new ideas!

These student talks are punctuated by other exciting events: there will be a poster session, a workshop for in-kingdom and out-of-kingdom job opportunities, and five keynote talks at the start of every session. The keynote speakers are luminaries in marine sciences:

  1. Prof. Terry Hughes, James Cook University

  2. John Gunn, Australian Institute of Marine Science

  3. Prof. Madeleine van Oppen, University of Melbourne

  4. Prof. Curtis Suttle, University of British Columbia

  5. Prof. Jack Middelburg, Utrecht University

We hope that the departmental conference will prove to be an invaluable learning and networking experience for all attendees!
