Travelling to Canberra
Our full program kicks off on Tuesday 7th August. Please note – there is always the risk of morning fog in Canberra. We recommend that travellers from QUT, Adelaide and Monash travel down on Monday 6th afternoon/evening to avoid potential flight delays. If you would prefer to travel down on the Monday afternoon/evening, please notify Carol Taylor via: email@example.com or the conference organiser Consec via: firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an extra night of accommodation.
Early Career Researchers
Research Training is scheduled for the afternoon on Thursday 9th August in two parallel sessions – one for Research Fellows & one for PhD Researchers. It will be run by our Chief Investigators who will present on different topics and conclude with separate dinners out in Canberra.
Please note it is compulsory for all RFs & PhD researchers to attend this training. You will have accommodation for Thursday night and then check out and travel home on Friday morning.
This year we have Elevator Pitch Presentations (3MT), Poster Sessions & Demo Sessions. It is an expectation that all students who have been with us longer than 6 months will present a poster. If you haven’t ready done an Elevator Pitch at an previous RoboVis we recommend you presenting one this year.
Adelaide & Monash researchers should contact Thuy Mai (Adelaide) & Sandra Pedersen (Monash) who will be able to assist with your flight bookings for the symposium. Please specify if you would like to travel Monday evening or Tuesday morning.
QUT researchers need to book their flights through the online QUT Corporate Travel Management (CTM) system.
