  1. 1. AIP Bi-Annual Postgraduate Conference Anapana Ridge, 38 Gilchrist Road, LESMURDIE WA The Australian Institute of Physics exists to support professional physicists and to promote all aspects of physics to the wider community. This conference has been convened to allow honours and postgraduate students to present to their peers in a non-pressured supportive environment. It is hoped that this conference will give the attendees a greater awareness of the research undertaken in WA and provide them with a networking opportunity. Presentations should go for 15-20 minutes followed by approximately five minutes of question time.
