General Information

The Workshop will have morning talks and late afternoon talks with some of the afternoon left free for collaborative discussions and working groups. Sufficient computers and connections for notebooks will be provided so that people can access their e-mail. Working areas will be available for discussions and coffee and tea will be also be available throughout the day.

Travel Planning

Most international attendees will require a valid visa and current passport to enter Australia. A currency converter is available here. Please note that air travel to, from, and within Australia can be congested in the workshop period since it coincides with the school and university mid-year breaks. If you are planning to attend you should ensure that your air travel reservations are made *well in advance* of your travel!


The Workshop will be held on level 1 of the Physics Building located on the University of Adelaide grounds, North Terrace, Adelaide. See attached map: H5.
