Abstract deadline extended to Friday 30 August

We’ve had a flurry of activity this week with many new registrations, payments and abstracts coming in. So we’ve decided to extend both the abstract deadline as well as the early bird registration deadline to Friday 30 August.

So if you haven’t already committed to join us this gives you an additional week to register, pay the cheaper registration fee, and get your abstract in! Remember that registration is a three step process, outlined on our website.

If you’d like to present a talk or poster at the conference, and have already registered and paid, simply complete the third and final step to submit your abstract by downloading the template and emailing it back to us by Friday 30 August.

 

Last date for abstracts is on the horizon…

[now extended for an additional week — Friday, 30 August]

Early bird registration and abstract submission close on 23 August—that’s only a week from now. Have you registered yet? It’s not too late! Join the attendees from Australia and New Zealand who have already registered, paid and submitted abstracts. We look forward to getting your registration and abstract next!

This year’s conference comprises three days of talks, one day of workshops (seven to choose from), one day of field trips (five options), a conference dinner, and a welcome reception. We have three exciting keynote speakers, a jam-packed programme with up to 75 talks by attendees, a poster session, and even a silent auction (new items continue to be added).
