Come and meet other science communicators over free food and drink!
Do you explain, teach, present, write, blog, twitter, film, illustrate, animate or otherwise communicate science or technology, news, ideas, concepts or research?
First drink free. Free canapes.
Tuesday 23 June, 6 – 9pm
Three Degrees Bar + Brewery
Number One QV Square, Corner Lonsdale St & Swanston St
ASC members free. $10 non-members.
Discounted ASC memberships available on the night.
Explore the strange and beautiful world of quantum mechanics – multiple realities, absolute uncertainty, many-worlds, quantum teleportation, quantum computing, and other generally spooky stuff of the Universe.
Our guest speaker Lloyd Hollenberg is a quantum theorist in the School of Physics at the University of Melbourne. He is an ARC Professorial Fellow and also the program manager for Quantum Device Modelling & Algorithms within the ARC Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computing Technology.
If that isn’t complex enough, Lloyd has spoken across Australia and overseas on topics as diverse as quantum physics, quarks and gluons, and the acoustics of the didgeridoo.

Time: 6.30 pm for a 7pm start
Venue: The Redback Hotel, 75 Flemington Road, North Melbourne (upstairs in the function room)
