Science and Wireless 2019 | Monday, 2nd December

The Australian Centre for Electromagnetic Bioeffects Research and Swinburne University of Technology are hosting this year’s Science and Wireless at Swinburne University, Melbourne.

The event is free, but registration is required.  Note that attendees with questions for the Public Forum have been asked to submit these in advance.

The event organisers write:

“Hear from world experts on the new 5th generation of mobile communication technology (5G), as well as the new ICNIRP guidelines on limiting electromagnetic fields.

This year’s event is divided into two parts:
Technical Lecture: ICNIRP GUIDELINES
Public Forum: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT 5G

Note that the technical nature of the presentation in ‘Part 1’ will make it more suitable for professionals working in the area, but anyone is welcome to attend. The ‘Part 2’ presentations have been tailored to those who do not have background knowledge in this area. In both cases, there will be plenty of time allocated to answer any questions that you may have.

Part 1: Technical Lecture – ICNIRP Guidelines
From 4:10 pm a technical lecture will focus on the ‘New ICNIRP Guidelines for Limiting Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields (100 kHz to 300 GHz)’ presented by Rodney Croft (ICNIRP Radiofrequency Guidelines Chair; ACEBR, University of Wollongong), followed by a discussion.
WHEN: Monday 2nd December 2019, 4:10 – 5:15pm (registration from 3:45)
WHERE: Lecture Theatre BA201 (ground floor), Business & Arts Building, Swinburne University of Technology, John St, Hawthorn VIC 3122

Part 2: Public Forum – Everything You Need to Know About 5G
From 6 pm the public forum ‘Everything You Need to Know About 5G’ will cover: What is 5G? / What research has been done on 5G? / Will 5G lead to higher exposures? / Is 5G harmful? / What do we know about mobile phones and cancer? / Can I be allergic or sensitive to mobile phone radiation? / Do national and international safety guidelines cover 5G? / What are the benefits of 5G?
WHEN: Monday 2nd December 2019, 6:00 – 8:00pm (welcome and registration from 5:30pm)
WHERE: Lecture Theatre BA201 (ground floor), Business & Arts Building, Swinburne University of Technology, John St, Hawthorn VIC 3122

Questions at the Public Forum: There will be lots of time for questions at the Public Forum, but please note that questions will need to be submitted in advance to enable us to cover as many issues as possible. Further information about this is provided in the registration process.

How to Register: Depending on whether you’d like to attend one or both events, please go to one of the following links to register:

Part 1: Technical Lecture – ICNIRP Guidelines

Part 2: Public Forum – Everything You Need to Know About 5G

    I attended the Science & Wireless last night. Rodney conveniently decided not to read out any questions about his qualifications ( or lack of) .

  2. CPJ says:

    Both ICNIRP and ARPANSA are COMPANIES with NO authority to determine any guideline and so forth. That’s why they need you to register and tell them your question beforehand. All LIARS.

    Isn’t it odd that the ‘technical’ part of this program on new ICNIRP guidelines is being given by a psychologist? And then a person with psychology-based skills is presenting later in the program on 5G community concerns. Surely an event of this nature deserves better??
