Please come along and talk Clojure with a bunch of friendly people.
Rodolfo Garcia-Flores, who works for the CSIRO, has kindly offered to give a presentation, here is a abstract for the talk.
"The trade of livestock from north Western Australia (WA) has recently become more vulnerable to policy changes, whereas the feasibility of building and operating local abattoirs has become highly sensitive to construction costs and prices of slaughtered meat. We formulate a facility location problem that selects segments of the road network to upgrade, and abattoirs from a set of potential sites in the Pilbara region of WA. The model provides insight on the trade off between resource allocation to facilities and links. We present initial results and propose an algorithm based on decomposition."
If there is time I will be giving a lighting talk on a Flocking simulation implementation using Quil ( https://github.com/quil/quil ). If anyone has something to show in a 5-10 min time range, please let me know!
As per usually some beer will be provided and we may carry the conversation to the Waterside Hotel afterwards.
Last time we had pizza which worked out pretty well so if people can indicate to me if they would like some pizza on the night and bring $5 to cover the cost that would be great! You will be asked the question when you indicate your attendance.
You can see slides and notes from the previous meeting here: https://github.com/jsofra/clj-melb/wiki/Previous-Meetings
I am still looking for future talks or suggestions of activities so please contact me if you are interested.
Hope to see you there,
