Connect before the conference

Last year, we trialed a system that allows new ALS attendees the chance to be put in touch with someone who knows the conference well. We would like to repeat it this year. You'll be put in contact before the conference, and can arrange to meet for a coffee while there. This means you'll have one extra familiar face while in Sydney. 

If you're a first time ALS attendee, or are from a campus with low ALS attendance, and would like to be put in touch with someone, let us know when you register.
If you're a regular ALS attendee and would be happy to be put in touch with someone ahead of the conference, let us know when you register.


For inquiries regarding the conference, please send an email to the organising team at the Macquarie Universityconf@als.asn.au

The ALS has a Code of Conduct. This code applies to all ALS events including the Annual Conference.
