Program

The conference timetable will be published when abstract submission has closed and abstracts are assessed. We have prepared a conference preliminary program for you. The main guest speakers for each session theme will be announced in coming weeks.

We have set aside time on Tuesday 21 August 2018 for organisations to develop Satellite Symposiums. If you are interested in delivering a satellite symposium, please e-mail your proposal to Eugeni Roura: e.roura@uq.edu.au.
