Exciting events for CIS Graduate Research Students

Regular Events


'Arvo' is the Aussie slang for afternoon, and Bytes serves a dual purpose: it sounds like 'bite' for snack, and 'byte' represents us CIS students!

Every Thursday @ 3.30 PM

CIS Student Hub on Level 3, Melbourne Connect

Meet and Greet! Engage with other CIS graduate research students while enjoying fresh fruits, snacks, sweets, coffee, and tea.

Contact us if you want to have your say and volunteer for helping the community during these regular events.
