The theme for this year’s theme is “The NRDC Grand Challenge“.

The NRDC Grand Challenge is to reduce the complexity, improve the ease of use, lower the barrier to entry, and increase the adoption of digital data tools and techniques for all Australian researchers by establishing a cohesive and sustainable approach to fostering the development of digital data skills and the integration of digital data technology platforms and practices.

The annual AeRO National Forum is a one day event, which attracts senior staff from its members as well as eResearch leads from institutions, NCRIS capabilities, discipline communities, research centres, funding bodies, government and other agencies. Representatives from the Department of Education and Training also attend. At the 2017 Forum, we had over 100 attendees from over 50 organisations, and we expect this year to be even bigger.


AAH Humanities, Arts and Culture Data Summit 14-15 March Canberra The Humanities, Arts & Culture Data Summit aims to bring together researchers, policy makers and institutions to discuss a national strategic approach to support future data-driven research and drive step-change in the way researchers can discover, access, mine and analyse Australia’s social and cultural data.
 20170402_AeRO_new_logo_black_font C3DIS 28-31 May Melbourne C3DIS 2018 builds upon the previous very successful CSIRO Computational and Simulation Sciences and eResearch Conferences (CSS and eResearch Conferences) which:

  • established communities of practice covering scientific, research and technical expertise;
  • showcased success stories and
  • offered specialised training during the technical workshops.

C3DIS aims to build a national community of practice of scientists, researchers, and computing, data and information management specialists from publicly funded Australian research organisations. All of these professionals share a common interest: the production of breakthrough science outcomes that require large scale, complex computations and analyses to be carried out over massive data sets.

 20170402_AeRO_new_logo_black_font eResearch Australasia 15-19 October Melbourne eResearch 2018 will offer delegates the opportunity to engage, connect, and share their ideas and exemplars concerning new information centric research capabilities, and how information and communication technologies help researchers to collaborate, collect, manage, share, process, analyse, store, find, understand and re-use information.
