CSANZ NZ ASM 16-18 June in Rotorua

Abstract deadline extended

If you didn’t quite make this week’s deadline, but would like to submit an abstract, we have extended the date for submission to 8pm, Monday 15th March.

Convenor, Dr Paul Bridgman says “the program committee is hard at work planning a meeting that will be uniquely Aotearoa themed – it will be by us, for us all: mā mātou, mō tatou.”

Take advantage of the earlybird registration rate (until 16 April). We look forward to getting together in Rotorua in June.

Travelling scholarship applications close on Friday 2 April

Members wishing to register for the meeting should consider eligibility for a travelling scholarship. Up to ten scholarships of $1,000 each towards attendance costs will be awarded in April to successful applicants.
