Science on the Swan

Science on the Swan is a parallel event taking place in Perth from 3-5 May 2016.

This year’s theme is “Cutting Edge”, and with 13 international speakers and many of Australia’s top researchers, this conference brings together experts from multiple disciplines who will talk on their latest discoveries and advances in health and biotechnology.

Science on the Swan is initiated and run by all five of WA’s Universities (The University of Western Australia, Curtin University, Murdoch University, Edith Cowan University and the University of Notre Dame), the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, the Telethon Kids Institute, WA Health Translation Network, the key teaching and research hospitals and the WA Government through the Department of Health and the Office of Science.

The topics of discussion at Science on the Swan and Big Data Week Perth compliment each other, and in particular, Science on the Swan’s first day of events are closely aligned with Big Data applications.
