Attention: AJIRN4 Conference Cancelled due to COVID-19

The University of Tasmania has, based on government advice,  decided to postpone events such as our conference for the foreseeable future owing to the COVID-19 situation.  I am really sorry that this has happened and the global impact of COVID-19 is something we are all trying to manage now. After discussion with the AJIRN committee and given the fluid nature of the situation, we will hold off on announcing the new dates for the conference until we have more certainty around when we will be able to host the event. For those of you who have already paid registration fees we will be organising a full refund as quickly as possible. The conference theme will remain the same and  proposals will still be a part of the conference when it eventuates. Stay safe and healthy everybody and on behalf of the AJIRN committee we look forward to seeing you all in the not too distant future.
