Welcome to the 4th newsletter of the IS(E) ECP. A number of RMIT events, coming up towards the end of the semester, are advertised here as well as an industry event occuring in Sydney. We also take a brief look back at a VC fellow event that ran a couple of weeks ago.

The VC fellows applications process closed last week and an advisory team in the ECP and I will be working through CVs and cover letters to long list and then short list those who wish to join us at RMIT.

A meeting of EFI 2019 Program designers was held in August to help shape our conference in February. In addition, the awardees of the ECP Concept paper were invited to a development workshop. Congratulations to Prof Arnan Mitchell and his team on obtaining funding for their concept paper. I hope to see his innovative interdisciplinary work flourish in 2019.

Cheers for now,

Mark Sanderson
