Professor Marcel Klaassen, Director, Centre for Integrative Ecology, has great pleasure in inviting you to attend our forthcoming CIE conference for staff and HDR students to be held on Thursday, 6th – 7th October 2016 at Waurn Ponds Estate (formerly Deakin Management Centre), Waurn Ponds Campus.
Our forthcoming conference will provide an opportunity for staff and students to come together, to discuss, listen and contribute to the thinking behind the research issues that face us now and into the future. All staff and HDR students are encouraged to attend. The conference also provides an important forum for staff/student networking, an activity strongly encouraged by the Centre and to showcase our achievements.
The global community is looking at universities to deliver quality research outcomes that make a difference, we should take charge, look to our future and build on this to meet the challenges ahead. The conference is a good way of working together through this, building on our ideas to create a brilliant research environment for our staff and students.
We highly encourage you to attend for an engaging two days of presentation, networking and activities.
Details of the conference arrangements and program will be confirmed and communicated closer to the date of the event, so stay tuned!
We would also like to extend this invitation to offer you a seat on the Scientific Organising Committee for this conference. This is an opportunity not to miss, especially for our HDR students (great for your CV). We would love for you to get involved, be creative and show us what you can offer to the conference. The role of the Committee will be to give direction to the conference, support and find ways to help publicise the conference, recommend speakers to be invited, and participate in the organizational aspect of the conference.
If you are interested in serving on the Organising Committee, please email Natasha Kaukov.
We look forward to your presence at this event.
