Paul is a computational scientist. That is, a computer scientist, an
information technology professional, a computational mathematician, a
combinatorialist, and a bioinformatician. He is interested in all these
fields, as well as mathematics education, tertiary teaching, Clifford
algebras, space science, science in general, innovation and
entrepreneurship. He especially likes it when people use his work to do
something of value. He is currently working as a scientific programmer
at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.

There will also be the usual casual hands-on workshop, Linux
installation, configuration and assistance and advice. Bring your laptop
if you need help with a particular issue. This will now occur BEFORE the
talks from 12:30 to 14:00. The talks will commence at 14:00 (2pm) so
there is time for people to have lunch nearby.

The meeting will be held at Infoxchange, 33 Elizabeth St. Richmond 3121.
 Late arrivals please call (0421) 775 358 for access to the venue.

LUV would like to acknowledge Infoxchange for the venue.
