NOTE: On Sunday 6 October a major football Final will be taking place in Sydney. Therefore, Conference participants—particularly if planning to stay in Sydney into the weekend following the Conference—should consider booking accommodation and flights as early as possible. (This applies more to domestic flights than international flights.) Monday 7 October is also a public holiday in Sydney (Labour Day).
