eRSA facilitates various events throughout the year, offering opportunities for professional development and networking across a diverse range of research disciplines. These events include:

Tech Talks

In conjunction with ANDS, eRSA delivers the South Australian monthly Tech Talk meetups. Tech Talks are a series of Australia-wide virtual and face-to-face meetings with inspiring talks and a panel discussion on the monthly topic. Taking place on the first Friday of the month, all Tech Talk events are free of charge and open to everyone.

Pathways forums

The Pathways series was developed by eRSA which aims to connect both academics and industry professionals connect to the latest, innovative, eResearch tools and services around the nation. The aim of these forums is to encourage the community to come together and discuss a range of subjects including training, expert support mechanisms, technology platforms, data or collections infrastructure.

Interested in participating in future Pathways events? Contact us.

Digital Humanities networking events

Work in digital humanities? eRSA has its sight set on not only providing eResearch support for the humanities and social sciences community but establishing South Australia as a ‘hub’ for all researchers in this space. These events are a part of this and aim to help build a South Australian digital humanities community, creating an opportunity for networking, skill-sharing and new collaborative opportunities.

Innovation Symposium

As part of the annual Open State festival, a South Australian festival promoting collaboration and innovation, eRSA hosts an Innovation Symposium event to discuss a current global issue.

Held during the later part of the year, these Symposiums bring together thought leaders across the areas of innovation, emerging technologies, and more through a South Australian lens. This event is a must for those working in industry, government, defence, research, libraries and technology.

Sign up to our newsletter to keep informed about upcoming Innovation Symposiums.

Training workshops

Our interactive workshops teach generic skills to users, and the tools learnt will be applicable to many types of analysis in any discipline.

  • “It would be impossible to do the type of research that we’re doing without them – it is a major factor in achieving our research outcomes.”  
    Associate Professor Con DoolanSchool of Mechanical Engineering, University of Adelaide
  • “Having access to greater computer power helps us put in place a more realistic model in terms of the number of atoms you can have in the system and that improves the predictive power of the calculations.”
    Professor Andrea GersonMinerals and Materials Science & Technology
  • “The supercomputing facilities at eResearch SA permit analysis of a host of interesting problems in evolutionary biology. It is the only computer system in SA that can perform certain complex calculations required to infer large evolutionary trees and associated patterns of evolution.”  
    Associate Professor Michael LeeSouth Australian Museum
  • "eResearch capabilities ... ensure we can continue to use the latest methods available in our field. The hope is that through the use of these technologies, we will be able to achieve some research outcomes that may otherwise not have been possible.”  
    Professor Ina Bornkessel-SchlesewskyCognitive Neuroscience, UniSA
  • On using an eResearch program to complete 3D modelling of architectural records: “We were able to build an interactive, photo image model of the [historical South Australian property Joseph Elliot’s cottage] home – transforming simple sketches and floor plans into an interactive 3D experience... what we have now is a computerised model that allows us to experience the Elliott house beyond just words on paper”.
    Associate Professor Christine Garnaut
  • “Open source intelligence is about extracting information from blogs, news sites and social media platforms, any information that can be freely accessed online. There’s way too much information out there for an individual or group of people to comprehend, so we have created automated tools to allow our users to extract the data they need...access to the latest technology allow[s] us to continue to provide the best platforms to our end-users.”
