The Centre for the Subatomic Structure of Matter (CSSM) began official operations on January 1, 1997.

The formation of the Centre was the result of a successful national competitive proposal by Professor Anthony W. Thomas and A/Prof. (now Professor) Anthony G. Williams of the then Department of Physics and Mathematical Physics, for one of eight Commonwealth Special Research Centres, with funding to commence in 1997 for a period of  nine years.

The Special Research Centre program has now been replaced by the Centre of Excellence program for new Centres, of which CoEPP is one.

There was one such competitive round for Special Research Centres across all fields of research every three years. Hence, there were of order two dozen such Centres nationally at any one time. With that initial funding period having expired, the CSSM is now administered through the Department of Physics of the School of Physical Sciences
