The biennial Australian Cotton Research Conference serves as a platform for cotton researchers to present and discuss concepts, key issues and the latest findings in research relevant to the Australian cotton industry, and cotton research community. The conference also encourages networking and collaborations, and installs a sense of enthusiasm for our research.
The three day conference will run from the 28-30 October at UNE in Armidale.
As well as your presentations we’ve some other activities already planned. You asked for it, so we are bringing back a ‘Devil’s Advocate’ session. You’ve asked for training, so we’re planning sessions around well-being and resilience and science communication (including special guest Professor Flint).
Early bird registration (until 2 August) is $320 and $220 for students. Registration after this date will be $350/$250.
To be eligible for student registration you must be enrolled in a course of study relevant to the cotton industry.
Registration is inclusive of all catering and events including the conference dinner on Tuesday.
Thursday will also see UNE hosting FUSCOM, so if you have an interest in pathology consider this in your travel plans.
