Our seminars are open to the public and are held regularly (generally on Tuesday or Thursday) at both of ICRAR’s nodes. See the calendar below for details on speakers and times.

Would you like to give a seminar at ICRAR?

Please get in touch!

Upcoming Seminars

These meetings are recorded for ICRAR members, accessible through your local-Node Teams account. If you miss a seminar at the other ICRAR node, and would like to catch up on the meeting recording, please drop the Node’s seminar organisers an email.
