This, the 9th WSU Symposium was originally planned to be a 2 day extravaganza of talks, workshops, an evening networking event with an optional day tour of the highlights of Sydney and surrounds, and, for the first time it would have been co-hosted by the Nanoscale Research Group, WSU and the Taiwan Magnetic Resonance Society, Taiwan, BUT, COVID-19 happened and our vision shrank.

On the 2nd and 3rd December, we will be hosting the 9th WSU Symposium via Webinar. A Student Poster Competition will be held and there will be a evening networking event to be held at Rydges Campbelltown for those people who are able to attend.

Registration is open to all

  • Webinar - A ZOOM link will be provided for those who have registered

A downloadable program DOCX, 567.73 KB (which will be updated regularly) will contain an abstract of each talk accompanied with a short biography of each speaker.
