Title: Aboriginal Child Language Acquisition Project

URL: http://acla.languages-linguistics.unimelb.edu.au/

Description: The Aboriginal Child Language Project is funded by an Australian Research Council Discovery Grant. We are interested in the type of input children receive in multilingual environments that include a traditional language, a contact variety of English and code-mixing between languages and speech styles. We have been following 5-10 children and their families in 3 communities (2004-2007): Kalkaringi, Tennant Creek and Yakanarra. Additionally Carmel O'Shannessy (MPI, Nijmegen and University of Sydney) has been studying children's acquisition of Light Warlpiri and Warlpiri at Lajamanu.

Title: The Australian National Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) Registry

URL: http://ancjdr.path.unimelb.edu.au/

Description: Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease is one of the human forms of the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE), also referred to as Prion diseases. The Australian National Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease Registry (ANCJDR) was established in October 1993 in response to the recognition of four probable Australian human pituitary hormone related CJD deaths. The ANCJDR is under contract to the Commonwealth to determine all suspect cases of TSE in Australia. Patients can be suspected with any of the various forms of TSE's, including classical CJD (sporadic or genetic). Acquired CJD is a separate class and includes both medically acquired CJD and the most recently recognized form identified in 1996, named Variant CJD (vCJD).

Title: The MoistureMap Project

URL: http://moisturemap.unimelb.edu.au/

Description: Accurate knowledge of current and future spatial variation in surface and root zone soil moisture at high resolution is critical for achieving sustainable land and water management. The fundamental limitation is that spatial and temporal variation in soil moisture is not well known, nor easy to measure or predict. Consequently, a prototype soil moisture monitoring, prediction and reporting system is being developed for Australia, with the Murrumbidgee as the demonstration catchment. The system will provide current and future soil moisture information and its uncertainty at 1km resolution, by combining weather, climate and land surface model predictions with soil moisture data from the European Space Agency's Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) satellite scheduled for launch in the second half of 2009; the first-ever dedicated microwave soil moisture mission. A significant component of this project is developing and testing the soil moisture retrieval algorithms to be used by SMOS and verifying the SMOS data for Australian conditions.

Title: School of Physics - Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics

URL: http://tcmp.ph.unimelb.edu.au/

Description: This area of physics is in the early stages of a second "quantum revolution" and is one of the most active fields of research in present day: in the last decade, the Nobel Prize in Physics/Chemistry has been awarded ten times for work related to condensed matter physics. We can image and control tiny clusters of atoms and even individual atoms, at scales where quantum effects play a key role. Our research focuses on the characterization and imaging of condensed matter with atomic resolution using a variety of imaging modes, and on the properties of novel quantum states such as Bose-Einstein condensates (BECs). We also study the transition of such macroscopic quantum systems into effectively classical objects via quantum decoherence and investigate the implications for foundational questions such as the infamous quantum measurement problem.

Title: School of Physics - Theoretical Particle Physics

URL: http://tpp.ph.unimelb.edu.au/

Description: The theoretical particle physics group has diverse research interests that range from astroparticle and cosmological physics that describes the physics of the early Universe, to the physics of the Standard Model and beyond that describes the fundamental interactions and matter of the subnuclear world. Group members have played a major role in exploring neutrino physics, dark matter and dark energy. Research areas of the Standard Model have included B physics, CP violation and Higgs physics, as well as frontiers beyond the standard model such as supersymmetry, extra dimensions and string theory. These are exciting times as we eagerly await the Large Hadron Collider experiment at CERN which will provide the answers to some of the most fundamental questions regarding the quantum Universe.

Its main purpose was to complement the formal On-Line activities of OR/MS Societies world-wide. You'll recall that at that time not much was offered by the national OR/MS societies. Clearly, the situation is much different now! The large national OR societies (eg INFORMS, ORS) and the International Federation of Operational Research Societies (IFORS) offer a wide spectrum of services to members and to the public at large.
