Dear ASCers,

We put together a bulletin of physics news and events every month on behalf of Marc Duldig, the AIP President. Here’s a taster of what’s in this month’s bulletin.


>From Marc Duldig, President of the Australian Institute of Physics

We’re gearing up for a big week in particle physics. CERN, home of the Large Hadron Collider, will be releasing their latest results in the search for the Higgs boson. At 5pm Melbourne time on Wednesday 4 July, there will be a joint seminar and press conference between CERN and the International Conference on High Energy Physics in Melbourne.

The AIP is co-hosting two public talks in association with the conference: the first with a panel of top physicists from CERN and the US; and another with the head of ATLAS, one of the world’s largest experiments.

In other AIP events, Tasmania’s winter public lectures start again this month with medical physics—then Lawrence Krauss is talking in August. And Brian Schmidt is giving the 2012 Dirac Lecture at UNSW, in one of his two July gigs listed below.

The AIP Congress and the associated ACOFT conference are in December, but abstract submissions are closing on 9 July. There are also now dates for the major social events, poster sessions and a public lecture.

And many of the AIP awards are closing 31 July, so please consider whether you, or someone you know, should nominate.

The Australian Academy of Science has opportunities for collaboration with India; The Australian newspaper is looking for great ideas through the $70,000 The Australian Innovation Challenge awards; and the Victorian AIP are running teacher consultation sessions on the new national physics curriculum.

As always, in this bulletin there are books for review, conferences and seminars across the country.
