>From Brian James, President of the Australian Institute of Physics


Dear ASCers,

Welcome to my monthly email to people around the country with an interest in Physics. It has news and events for July 2010 and beyond.

This month the AIP is discussing black hole appetites in Canberra, discovering the real CERN in Wollongong, delving into the history of the Nobel Prize in Physics at UQ and adventuring in wide field astronomy in Hobart. These and many more events listed below.

And we're opening a new service. All of the events listed in this bulletin are also listed at our new online calendar of physics events. It's at http://www.scienceinpublic.com/blog/aip-events

You can search by various criteria, copy an event into your own calendar and much more. You can also add your own events to the calendar. They'll appear after moderation. I welcome your feedback on the service.

Last month we gave a link for instructions on how to forward your PhysMail service. The link may not have worked for those who are not IoP members. If you wish to forward your PhysMail service, you can find instructions at http://mail.aip.org.au<https://east.exch021.serverdata.net/owa/redir.aspx?C=32ca9592109e45a8abf5c827ee2bd91f&URL=http%3a%2f%2fmail.aip.org.au%2f>.

You can still have input into the national curriculum in physics for senior secondary students, with the release of the draft curriculum for years 11 and 12. Consultation forums will be held around Victoria in the week beginning Monday 19 July. Teachers are encouraged to participate in the consultation to ensure their voice is heard. More details below.

The Monash University School of Physics is advertising two vacancies in condensed matter physics. More details below.

You are welcome to contact me regarding AIP or other physics matters, just email aip_president at aip.org.au<mailto:aip_president at aip.org.au>.

If you have trouble reading the bulletin in this format, it's also online at www.aip.org.au<http://www.aip.org.au>. You can also read it and rss it on my blog here<http://www.scienceinpublic.com/blog/category/bulletins/aip-presidents-blog> and on LinkedIn.

If you have news or other information for the bulletin, email Niall by the 23rd of each month.



Kind regards,



Brian James,

AIP President

TITLE: Harley Wood public lecture 'Adventures in wide-field astronomy'
SPEAKER: Elaine Sadler, Chair of the National Committee of Astronomy
VENUE: Physics lecture Theatre 1, Sandy Bay campus, University of Tasmania

The Canadian astronomer Sydney van den Bergh predicted a decade ago that "The astronomy of the 21st century will be dominated by computer-based manipulation of huge homogeneous surveys of various types of astronomical objects."   In many ways this has come true, and Elaine will share with you some of the excitement of the large, wide-field astronomical surveys in which she and her colleagues have been involved.  She will talk about some of the challenges of this kind of work, as well as showing how wide-field astronomy can provide unique insights into the evolution of galaxies and their central black holes over timescales of billions of years.  Finally, she will give a glimpse of future developments in wide-field radio astronomy.
The annual Harley Wood public lecture (co-sponsored by the AIP Tas Branch) is part of the Astronomical Society of Australia conference being held at the University of Tasmania from 5-8 July.

3. AIP 2010 Congress - call for papers closing 9 July

The AIP 2010 Congress (5 - 9 December 2010) will be the biggest and most diverse scientific meeting of the Australian physics calendar. The Congress covers approximately 20 special interest groups and, in 2010, the incorporation of the Australian Conference on Optical Fibre Technology (this is only the second time that these two premier events have been brought together) will attract specialists from areas of telecommunication engineering.

The call for papers will close Friday 9 July and we encourage you to submit via the Congress website: http://www.aip2010.org.au/

4. Optical measurement wins Ken Baldwin recognition on World Metrology Day

Ken Baldwin's pioneering work in manipulating atoms using precision laser techniques was recognised by the National Measurement Institute, who awarded him the Barry Inglis Medal for excellence in measurement science.

The optical measurement work done by Ken, from ANU, has the potential to enhance Australia's bid for the Square Kilometre Array radio telescope.

5. Monash University Physics positions vacant
