Physical and mathematical sciences
The Elizabeth and Frederick White research conferences cover topics in the physical and mathematical sciences related to the solid Earth, the terrestrial oceans, the Earth's atmosphere, solar-terrestrial science, space sciences and astronomy. Their aim is to advance at the most fundamental level of the understanding of their subject, introduce to Australian research new aspects or directions, and encourage participation of overseas scientists. If you are interested in holding a conference, see the Elizabeth and Frederick White research conference funding page.
