Sci+Tech in the City

Co-presented by CSIRO Data61, Risklab Australia and the Australian Society of Operations Research

Sci+Tech in the City is a series of short talks hosted by CSIRO Data61 in Melbourne.

The second series of Sci+Tech in the City will be held on Thursday evenings between 09 November 2017 and 30 November 2017. Usually three and sometimes four speakers each week will present on selected topics within a theme, with the talks ranging from innovation stories, to overviews and showcases of science and technology. Join us for any, some, or all of the one hour sessions over the four week series. Network over finger food and drinks with experts and colleagues from industry, government and the research community at Data 61's Demonstration Lab at 710 Collins Street, a short walk from Southern Cross Station.


Data61's Demonstration Space is in an easy-to-reach location. It is a bit funky, and it is also a bit cozy. We have space for around 40 attendees each week. This means that registration is essential. This is quick and easy to do: see our EventBrite registration page (to be updated 20 October 2017)

Although registration is free, attendees are encouraged to make a donation on the day to the Brotherhood of St Laurence's David Sier Foundation, which is named in honour of Operations Research and analytics pioneer David Sier. David, a founding member of CSIRO's OR Group in 1993, worked tirelessly in BSL's Brain Bank until his passing in 2016.
