Conference venue

The Conference will be held at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch NZ

More details will follow once the program is more developed and the rooms are booked. It is anticipated that some activities will be held in the University, and some will be held in the student accommadation area.

The first event will be an informal welcome reception dinner on Wednesday 20 November.

Ben Furman will host a full day workshop on Thursday 21 November.

The Conference proper will be held on Friday the 22nd and Saturday the 23rd of November, starting at 9am.

The last activity will be a breakfast and discussion forum on Sunday 24 November, finishing at approximately 1100.




Accommodation is being arranged in Sonoda Village (part of the University Student accommodation, just a short walk from the actual University). There are 30 single rooms that are being held for us which will cost $60 per person per night, plus approximately $29 per person per day for catering. Rooms will need to be booked with the accommodation service (details will be provided). There is a possibility of obtaining more rooms if there is more demand.

We hope to arrange some conference activities over meals and in the evenings, either at Sonota or Uni Hall, so we would encourage delegates to stay in the Student Village. You are however welcome to arrange your own accommodation elsewhere.
