Science at the Shine Dome

In May each year, Australia’s foremost physical and biological scientists gather to honour outstanding work in science.

At Science at the Shine Dome, national awards are made, high achievers are admitted to Fellowship of the Australian Academy of Science, and there is a high-powered symposium on an issue of national importance. In addition, the meeting aims to enthuse and educate young researchers. This year's highlight of the annual science calendar in Australia was held on 23–25 May 2017 at the unique National Heritage-listed Shine Dome in Canberra, which has been strongly associated with science in Australia since it was built in 1959.
