IFM Research Conference 2012

Introduction

The IFM Research Conference is held annually and is designed to give HDR students the opportunity to showcase their research via an oral presentation or poster to both staff and fellow students.
Although named the IFM Research Conference, students and staff from CISR, 'BioDeakin' and the School of Engineering are invited to attend. The audience is introduced to cutting edge research in fields as diverse as nanomedicine to energy storage. Students have the added benefit of presenting, perhaps for the first time, to a 300 strong audience comprised of their peers and academic mentors.

Professor Joe Graffam (73 KB) Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research Development and Training) will give the opening address for the 2012 IFM Research Conference.

A plenary lecture will also be given by Professor Paul Mulvaney, ARC Australian Laureate Fellow and Professor of Chemistry in the School of Chemistry and Bio21 Institute at the University of Melbourne.

Deakin Worldly font

The 'Worldly' font has been rolled out to all standard Deakin workstations. Please contact eSolutions (72400) if you don't have the font on a standard Deakin computer. It should be in your Fonts under "Worldly". For non-standard Deakin computers, contact Sandy Benness to obtain the font to install on other Deakin-owned computers exclusively for Deakin work.
Please note: the Worldly font cannot be installed on non-Deakin computers.
Marketing are encouraging staff and research students to use this font as much as possible in the headers and design of documents.
Within the body of Microsoft Office documents the default font is Calibri.
It is best to use worldly font for headings and design elements and use the default calibri font for the body text of documents. This will help with ensuring the body text is clear.
In the case of powerpoint, Marketing suggest using the calibri font for the body text and worldly font for the headings.
As 'Worldly' is our unique font, it will not be found on computers outside the Deakin network. To ensure you lock in the 'Worldly' font so that it will appear on non-Deakin computers (in its correct format), please save documents that you intend to distribute/share electronically as a PDF.
