ResBaz Sydney

Upskill in everything research!

Please follow this link for the 2021 Online ResBaz Sydney


What is ResBaz?

Sydney's Research Bazaar is an intensive festival and conference where researchers come together to up-skill in next-generation digital research tools and scholarship. In the spirit of a marketplace or bazaar, ResBaz is a highly participatory event where researchers from many different disciplines can learn, share knowledge and skills, and have fun.

In September 2019 UNSW hosted ResBaz to a crowd of 400+ people. The program consisted of:

  • 3 days of ResBaz Sydney Festival connecting researchers from a broad range of backgrounds. It included lightning talks, presentations, and keynotes highlighting the latest and most interesting research methods. It was a great opportunity to connect with industry sponsors and bring research to the next level.
  • 3 days of ResBaz Sydney Training workshops providing key skills needed to expand research horizons, diving deep into Python, R, Matlab and Julia to name a few.
  • A dedicated ResBaz Sydney Compute Day focusing on training and using the latest computing resources. Google Cloud, MS Azure, AWS and RONIN provided in-depth training on their latest platforms. There were presentations and workshops by NCI and Pawsey and a training workshop by MathWorks.
