    Here we go again: Science and Wireless Spin 2015

    Playing to the well-worn retro tune of ‘thermoregulatory effects only’ the usual band of thermalists are hosting another so called Science and Wireless conference in Melbourne this year. And to top it all off we have the panel discussion chaired by none other than the eminent Professor Michael Repacholi. Expect the usual whirling dervish spin from this group. Why don’t they ever invite people such as Lennart Hardell to present? The answer to that is obvious.

    Oh! And as for the topic of electrosensitivity expect the answer to be that its all just a psychosomatic disorder by needlessly worrying people.

    Nothing new here….just more Procrustean bullshit.

    The NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence, Australian Centre for Electromagnetic Bioeffects Research (ACEBR) will be hosting Science and Wireless 2015 at RMIT University on December 8.

    The focus of this year”s event will be on radio-frequecy (RF) health research, with ACEBR researchers presenting their current research projects followed by a keynote presentation on international research developments. A facilitated Q&A panel discussion will then provide plenty of opportunity for open discussion on the topics, followed by informal conversations during the poster session over drinks and light snacks.

    Poster session

    For the first time the Science and Wireless event will include a poster session where ACEBR students and researchers as well as other registered participants will showcase their studies on the relevant topics in open discussion with the forum attendees. Please indicate on your on-line registration form (below) whether you intend to present a poster and if so, you will need to provide the title as well as the names and affiliations of all the co-authors.
