Day two will kick off with a light breakfast and a presentation by Ovum on ways in which you might address the varied topics in our (soon to be released) 2018 Top Ten Topics list.  Following on from this, the day will focus on the topic of ‘big data’.  We have a great line-up of speakers including Professor Dragan Gasevic, previously Sir Tim O’Shea Chair in Learning Analytics and Informatics at the University of Edinburgh and now at Monash University; Peter Gray, Senior Director of Technology, Sports Practice, responsible for overseeing the strategy, design and delivery of sports technology solutions including Dimension Data's technology partnership with the Tour de Franc; Brad Tucker, Astrophysicist/Cosmologist, Research Fellow, Research School of Astronomy & Astrophysics, ANU and Peter Elford, Director, Government Relations and eResearch, AARNet.  See the website for more information on our speakers.
