Integrated Earth 2023 - Expression of Interest (by 5th May)


Shine Dome, Australian Academy of Science, Canberra


Integrated Earth 2023 will be a two-day symposium held at the Shine Dome on Ngunnawal Country (Canberra) that aims to integrate Earth systems expertise and data better to address complex Earth systems challenges that Australia faces. This event will be run in a face-to-face hybrid format from 12 – 13 September 2023 and free for all to attend. It is being produced by members of the National Earth and Environmental Sciences Facilities Forum (NEESFF), including TERN, AuScope, NCI, ARDC, IMOS and ACCESS-NRI. It is generously supported by the late Elizabeth and Frederick White and the Australian Academy of Science.

Integrated Earth 2023 will bring together participants working across the five Earth systems (geosphere, biosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere) to identify opportunities for data integration and scientific collaboration. Organisers seek to create a cross-disciplinary community of practice for Australian Earth and environmental science data, ensuring that, whilst data might be collected in isolation and for a specific research problem, it can be integrated with other data for a wide range of possible applications.

Australian Sensitive Data Interest Group Meeting 24: Classifying Sensitive Data

 12 pm - 1 pm AEST, Online       Register

This meeting will focus on data classification as the first step in simplifying sensitive data management. Dr Jac Charlesworth, Associate Director of Digital Research at the University of Tasmania, will discuss 2 projects addressing institutional management of sensitive data, both part of the ARDC’s Institutional Underpinnings program. The first involved the development of a new classification framework for research data at the University of Tasmania. This work is now being extended in a second project in collaboration with several other universities, which aims to lay the foundations for discussions about ‘best practice’ minimum controls, requirements, and considerations for securing and sharing research data, especially sensitive data.

Jac heads the Digital Research team at the University of Tasmania and is responsible for providing eResearch services including high-performance and cloud computing, research data storage, and data archiving capabilities as well as broader data governance.

This session will be recorded. The recording will be provided to all registrants and published online.

Who Should Attend?

This meeting is open to all, especially those in the research, government or health and medical community who work with sensitive data and wish to better and more safely manage, store, analyse and collaborate on it.

WEBINAR: AlphaFold: what’s in it for me? - Register

1:00 pm – 2:00 pm AEST, online

AlphaFold has taken the scientific world by storm with the ability to accurately predict the structure of any protein in minutes using artificial intelligence (AI). From drug discovery to enzymes that degrade plastics, this promises to speed up and fundamentally change the way that protein structures are used in biological research. 
Beyond the hype, what does this mean for structural biology as a field (and as a career)?

Dr Craig Morton, Drug Discovery Lead at the CSIRO, is an early adopter of AlphaFold and has decades of expertise in protein structure/function, protein modelling, protein–ligand interactions and computational small molecule drug discovery, with a particular interest in anti-infective agents for the treatment of bacterial and viral diseases.

Craig joins this webinar to share his perspective on the implications of AlphaFold for science and structural biology. He will give an overview of how AlphaFold works, ways to access AlphaFold, and some examples of how it can be used for protein structure/function analysis.

WORKSHOP: Make your bioinformatics workflows findable and citable - Register

  3:00 pm – 5:00 pm AEDT, online

Applications close at 11:59 pm AEST, Sunday 19 March 2023.

Computational workflows are invaluable resources for research communities. They help us standardise common analyses, collaborate with other researchers, and support reproducibility. Bioinformatics workflow developers invest significant time and expertise to create, share, and maintain these resources for the benefit of the wider community and being able to easily find and access workflows is an essential factor in their uptake by the community.

This workshop will introduce you to workflow registries and support attendees to register their workflows on the popular workflow registry, WorkflowHub. We’ll kick off the workshop with an introduction to the concepts underlying workflow findability, how it can benefit workflow developers, and how you can make the most of workflow registries to share your computational workflows with the research community. You will then have the opportunity to register your own workflows in WorkflowHub with support from our trainers.
