The onsite conference will be held on The Australian National University campus. Registration and the sessions on Monday September 9, Tuesday September 10 and Wednesday September 11 will all be held in the Manning Clark Centre. The “monster networking event” on Sunday September 8 (4-8pm), will be in the Great Hall at University House, where you can also register. More information about these two venues is provided below and you can find them on maps of the ANU campus.

We also provide information on finding the conference venues from your accommodation and the facilities and services (including food outlets) available at The ANU Union Court.

The Manning Clark Centre at The Australian National University

The main onsite conference venue is the Manning Clark Centre on The Australian National University campus. The Centre is located adjacent to the University Union at Union Court, which is the main social hub for the university. Union Court has a collection of food outlets and other services and facilities. The Manning Clark Centre has 6 lecture theatres (we will mainly be using lecture theatre #1) and a large foyer. In addition we have booked several nearby tutorial rooms, which can be used for workshops and networking activities.
