The ASI NSW-ACT joint branch meeting is to be held on 18-19th August 2022 at Peppers Craigieburn, Bowral.

This meeting is a valuable opportunity for all researchers to network and establish collaborations between research groups and companies in a friendly atmosphere. 

Always a special and collegial meeting, this will also be the first face-to-face meeting for the branch since 2019, and a great opportunity to re-establish networks. This is a particularly valuable opportunity for Students and Early Career Researchers to present and receive feedback on their work in a relaxed environment.
