All ADCS activities except the dinner will take place in the Gardens Theatre, Queensland University of Technology.  

Sunday 10 December


4:00-4:45pm Registration


6:00pm - 10:00pm ADCS Conference Dinner

A pre-conference dinner will be held on Sunday evening (December 10). The location is The Ship Inn starting at 6.00pm. (Note the price of the dinner is not included in the registration fee - so everyone will have to cover the cost of dinner and drinks themselves)

The Ship Inn is easy to find - it lies at the corner of Sidon and Stanley streets, in the Southbank Parklands. The best way to find it is to walk to the southern end of the "Goodwill bridge". (The pedestrian bridge - QUT is at northern end of this same bridge)
