ACCESS Science Day 2

An ACCESS science day is being planned for 24th May, 2019 (9.30am-4.00pm), open to anyone who works with or is interested in the Australian Community Climate and Earth System Simulator (ACCESS). The aim is to share current work with ACCESS and both science and technical presentations are welcome. To allow for maximum participation, presentations will be short (10 minutes, maximum 5 slides). The meeting will be held by video conference across four sites:

  • Melbourne: CSIRO Aspendale;
  • Hobart: CSIRO or IMAS Hobart (TBC)
  • Canberra: ANU
  • Sydney: UNSW

We strongly encourage you to attend in person at your nearest location (lunch provided). If this is not possible, video conference details can be provided on request.

If you are interested in attending, please mark the date in your diary and email Reception.Aspendale at by Tuesday May 14th with your name, institution and which venue you will be attending (so that we can organise catering).

If you would like to present, please email simon.marsland at by Tuesday May 14th with your name, institution and the title of your presentation.

A second notice will be distributed once the program has been prepared and to provide any venue specific information.

Location information

CSIRO Aspendale: 107-121 Station Street, Aspendale (Cnr Robertson Parade). Short walk from Aspendale station or parking available. Please sign in at reception. The meeting will be in the lecture theatre.

CSIRO Hobart: Castray Esplanade, Battery Point. Please sign in at reception. The meeting will be in the Auditorium.

ANU: Hales Room, Building Jaeger 7 at RSES. Mills Road. The room is on the first floor. For access to the building, please call Claire Carouge (mobile number will be emailed to Canberra participants). See map: . Parking at ANU is horrendous and best avoided unless arriving before 9am. For the CSIRO people, the best option might be to park at CSIRO Black Mountain and walk. Public transport: 2 bus lines come into ANU: No.3 and No.7. There are also lots of bus lines stopping at ANU outskirts, it’s about 15min walk to the building from these bus stops.

UNSW: Level 4, Mathews Building (F23 on map)in the Climate Change Research Centre board room. Access via gate 11, but parking has to be paid for (top level of multi-storey, H25 on map). Public transport: there are express buses from Central Station but the new light rail system is making this hard.
