ISAANZ 25 (virtual) 6-7 Dec ’21

6-7 December 2021. ISAANZ 25 (virtual). Please accept our sincere apologies for the delay in opening registration for the conference. As you’ll be aware, we had hoped to host a hybrid in-person/online conference and we have been carefully monitoring government announcements about the current Auckland lockdown. With regret, we have decided that in-person attendance will not be possible and that the conference will now be an online only event. We are asking delegates to pay a small conference fee of NZ$ 50 to help offset the cost of the conference organisation. ISAANZ has decided that the conference will be free to registered Early Career Researchers and postgraduate students.
