The Pulse #8 2022

As you know we are working toward establishing our own simulation spaces in Queensland, Victoria and WA.  After a lot of navel gazing and deliberating on nomenclature for these initiatives while recognising that the terms ‘Centre” and ‘Campus’ can’t be used the following has been conceptualised as a working name:
