AIP Women in Physics Lecture Tour: call for nominations 2016

Posted By Administration, 02 November 2015

The Australian Institute of Physics Women in Physics Lecture Tour celebrates the contribution of women to advances in physics. Under this scheme, a woman who has made a significant contribution in a field of physics will be selected to present lectures in venues arranged by each participating branch of the AIP.  Nominations are currently sought for the AIP WIP Lecturer for 2016. We are seeking a woman working overseas who:

 

       has made a significant contribution in a field of physics research

       has demonstrated public speaking ability

       is available in 2016 to visit Canberra and each of the six Australian State capital cities and surrounding regions.

 

Presentations will include school lectures, public lectures and research colloquia, subject to negotiation with the various AIP branches and their contacts. School and public lectures are expected to be of interest to non-specialist physics audiences, and to increase awareness among students and their families of the possibilities offered by continuing to study physics. University lectures will be presented at a level suitable for the individual audience (professional or graduate). Air/surface travel and accommodation will be provided.

 

Nominations should be sent via email to the AIP Special Projects Officer (see information below) via the nomination form available from the Women in Physics Lecturer page of the AIP website:
