On behalf of the Conference Organising Committee, we invite you to join us for the 11th eResearch Australasia Conference, to be held at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, 16 – 20 October 2017.

eResearch 2017 will offer delegates the opportunity to engage, connect, and share their ideas and exemplars concerning new information centric research capabilities, and how information and communication technologies help researchers to collaborate, collect, manage, share, process, analyse, store, find, understand and re-use information.

We’re excited to announce this year’s conference will see the introduction of a new look social program and other initiatives aimed at further engaging members of the eResearch community both locally and internationally.

Conference workshops will be held on Monday and Tuesday, with the main conference program running from Wednesday to Friday.

More information regarding the conference including invited speakers, social events and engagement initiatives will be released via our new look conference website as planning proceeds. We encourage you to check the website regularly for updates.

We look forward to seeing you in Brisbane.
