Event Information

Event description



During these uncertain times it is important we all stay connected. Following on from the successful 'Building Collaborative Research Teams' session, we have developed a full series of webinars to give our ACES team, our collaborators and the wider research community the opportunity to further their learning and maintain their networks all from the comfort of your own home!

Our resident experts will provide you with insights into important professional and technical areas including in electromaterials science, translation and commercialisation, academic writing and job skills.

All webinars will be hosted via Zoom, with login details provided prior to each event.

When registering, be sure to select one ticket for each webinar session that you would like to attend (see below for details).

All webinars are listed and held in Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST).

Please note: Additional webinars may be added to the program. We will keep you updated with any changes.

3 June, 10am to 11am (AEST) - Crafting the Perfect LinkedIn Profile (Sam Findlay)

While LinkedIn can seem like it is built for businesspeople, not scientists, it is actually a powerful tool for academic visibility and successful networking. Our 'Crafting the Perfect LinkedIn Profile' webinar, hosted by ACES Media and Communications Officer Sam Findlay, will cover some simple but effective pointers on how to turn your LinkedIn profile into your personal online brand and maintaining a digital CV.


4 June, 4pm to 5pm (AEST) - Application of Ionic Liquids as Solvents in Electrochemical Sensors (A/Prof Debbie Silvester)

Ionic liquids (ILs) have attracted significant interest as replacement solvents in electrochemical experiments over the last two decades. This webinar, hosted by A/Prof Debbie Silvester from Curtin University in Perth, will examine ionic liquids and their employment with low-cost planar electrode devices for the detection of target analytes including gases and explosive compounds. In particular, Debbie will discuss some of her group’s recent developments in this area as they work towards their long-term goal of developing a new generation of low-cost commercially available sensors comprising of ionic liquids or gelled electrolytes, for the fast and reliable detection of analytes, including:

  • The sensing of gases in ILs with different humidity environments, revealing that ion structuring at the electrode is disrupted in the presence of moisture;
  • Mixing with polymers to physically stabilise the IL on the electrode, a move towards robust wearable sensors; and
  • The preconcentration ability of ionic liquids that allows the detection of explosive compounds such as TNT using liquid/liquid portioning.


11 June, 4pm to 5pm (AEST) - Publishing from an Industry Project, Presented by ACES/storEnergy (A/Prof Drew Evans, Prof Patrick Howlett & A/Prof Will Gates)

Are you working on a project with an industry partner and concerned about your freedom to publish? Are you planning to lead industry projects in the future and want to learn how to manage any possible issues? This webinar brings you a panel of three senior researchers who have experience of managing a diverse range of research projects with industry partners to help answer your questions. They will share their experience through case studies, followed by a Q&A session with the participants.


17 June, 10am to 11am (AEST) - Polymers for Neuroregeneration (A/Prof Jeremy Crook)

Content to be confirmed


24 June, Time TBA - Latest Advances in Bioinks, Presented by ACES/ANFF (Prof Gordon Wallace & Dr Sanjeev Gambhir)

Bioprinting involves the use of materials or inks made from biological sources, which can be combined and printed to create structures that can grow new tissue in the desired place or shape. These bioinks can be controlled chemically at the molecular level and engineered structurally during bioprinting to generate the final shape, function, structure and architecture of a designed construct.

Join us for our Bioinks Webinar presented by ACES/ANFF, and learn about the latest developments in bioinks and the importance of the mechanical, rheological and biological properties in these materials to ensure the correct functionality of the bioprinted tissue and organ.
