AARNet Researcher Talks 2021 Winter Series

Researchers across different domains talk about how they are using AARNet infrastructure and CloudStor SWAN to accelerate their research

01 Jul-2021 - 02 Sep-2021

In this AARNet winter series of Researcher Talks, to be held monthly from June to September, you'll find out how researchers across different domains are using AARNet infrastructure to accelerate their research. Participation in these virtual sessions is via Zoom.

Each of the four monthly sessions will feature a presentation by a researcher, who will speak about their work and the tools and techniques they use for analysis, such as CloudStor's SWAN (Service for Web-based ANalysis), followed by an informal interactive Q&A session.

All researchers, from undergrad to post doc, and eResearch and Research Support staff are welcome to attend. The purpose of these interactive sessions is to facilitate a peer-learning environment by providing an opportunity for knowledge sharing led by researchers who are already in the driver's seat, harnessing the power of Jupyter Notebooks and the AARNet cloud for their research analysis needs.


Researcher Talk #2 

  • Date: Thursday 1 July
  • Time: 1pm-2pm (AEST)
  • Venue: online via Zoom
