How to book a seminar

Anna Renfrew looks after catering, accommodation and organizing flights.
Anne Woods looks after this seminar page, LT bookings and the chemistry events schedule which is emailed to the staff and students each Friday.


School seminars: As of 1 March 2018 weekly school seminars will be held on Fridays only at 11:00 am. To organize a Friday seminar you will need to check the seminar page for availability, then email the seminar coordinators (see top of page), , and with details of speaker, institution and proposed date. If your speaker requires travel and accommodation please contact Anna Renfrew. Please send abstract (Word doc) to Anne Woods a week before the event so it can be advertised properly in Chemistry Events and the TV screen in the foyer. Duties of the host: If you are hosting a Friday seminar and you wish to request a light lunch of sandwiches and juice for students, please give Anna Renfrew sufficient notice. Seminar lunches will be held in the School's tea room located on level 1 from 12:00pm to 1:10pm. In the week of the seminar, organise the schedule for the day; if necessary, organise for 3 to 5 students to attend the lunch (nominating 1 to pick up the lunch from Anna, and another to take the speaker to where the lunch is being held. If your speaker would also like to give a talk at UNSW (their seminars are on Thursday), the seminar coordinators can organize this for you. The cost will be split between USYD and UNSW.

Early career researcher seminars: The first Wednesday of each month 11:00 am seminar session has been set aside for postdoctoral and other early career researchers to present their research to the school. This will be a chance to increase the visibility of the postdocs in the school and of course learn about chemistry. Research presented will range from PhD work, previous postdoc work or current research being undertaken within the school, depending on the desire of the presenter. The host for each month will be the previous months presenter so please check seminar page. Please send abstract (Word doc) to a week before the event so it can be advertised properly in Chemistry Events and the TV screen in the foyer.

Sydney University Chemical Society: Check for availability and then advise seminar coordinators (see top of page), , and of the date. Please send abstract to Anne Woods a week before the event so it can be advertised properly. SUCS seminars are traditionally held at 5:30-6:30pm with refreshments from 5:00 outside the nominated LT which is usually LT2 or LT4. Please note that the SUCS student council members organize the catering for ALL SUCS events - the SUCS Honorary Secretary to advise them about this.

Postgraduate seminars: Check for availability of Mondays then advise your supervisor, seminar coordinators (see top of page), and of the date. Please send abstract to Anne Woods a week before the event so it can be advertised properly. Postgraduate seminars are held on Mondays from 4:00 pm.

All others (known as Special seminars): You will need to check the seminar page for availability, bearing in mind that the School seminars (Fridays at 11:00am) and Postgraduate seminars (Mondays at 4:00 pm) are permanently booked. Once you have chosen a date and time please email details (including preferred venue; date, time, name of speaker and institution) to seminar coordinators (see top of page), and . Please send abstract to Anne Woods a week before the event so it can be advertised properly. Please note that Anne has to book a lecture theatre/room so it is important to notify her of any proposed special seminars - do not assume that a chemistry LT is available.
