The NETS2013 conference is set to be the most exciting and novel conference.... Perhaps ever!
The Canterbury and West Coast branch are planning to start the conference in Christchurch on the TranzAlpine train. The train journey to Greymouth and the West Coast will be a combination of registration, workshops, networking and other events all done with the backdrop of the Canterbury Plains, mountains, tussock land, braided rivers, rain forest and coast, all with their biosecurity issues.
The conference is to be titled and themed 'Shake it Up!' alluding to the facts that the conference is moving to the West Coast as Christchurch has lost suitable facilities during recent earthquakes and the upheavals in biosecurity.
A new draft programme fo the conference will be loaded as soon as available. The conference is to run from 31st July to 2nd August, a day shorter than originally planned.
Keep checking the website as more information will be uploaded soon.
