Commencing at 10.30a.m. (Registration)
Esplanade Hotel, Fremantle

Dear Members,

Please find attached the summary program for presentations at the WAIER Forum on Sunday 21 st November This provides information on the time and room for presentations. Presentations will be made in rooms supplied by the Esplanade Hotel. They will be numbered 1 to 4 for your convenience A full program with abstracts of presentations will be provided on the day of the conference.

Please note the change in starting time for the Forum this year. This is because the dinner follows the forum, rather than preceding it as in previous years, so that the forum fits in with the AARE conference which follows the next day at the Esplanade. The forum will start with registration and morning tea (a civilised touch) at 10.30 a.m., and the first session commences at 11.00 a.m. The last session concludes at 4.30p.m., and is followed by a happy hour at a local hotel from 5p.m. to 6p.m. Then participants proceed to Paesano's restaurant for the Forum Dinner, which commences at 6.30p.m.

There are four concurrent sessions. Papers have been grouped according to some common themes, and it is hoped that this will allow participants the opportunity to attend papers that interest them.

Parking is available opposite the Esplanade Hotel in the No.11 car park, on Marine Terrace. If that car park is full (unlikely at 10.30a.m.) try car park no. 2 to the west in Marine Terrace, or nos. 21 and 21A further to the east in the Terrace, all within walking distance.

If you have not registered, registration can be completed prior to the Forum.

Registration Charges are:

Full registration$30
Full-time student members$20
Paper sessions only$15

If you have any queries, contact Gary Partington on 370 6571 or Graham Dellar on 351 2181.
