Information for delegates

Our delegates flying into Adelaide for the first time will find that the airport terminal is located about 15 minutes from the CBD, with airport shuttle buses operating regularly.

All delegates are invited to join us for some drinks and snacks at our Welcome Reception on Wednesday 19 th November from 5.00 to 7.00 pm. It will be held in the Kerry Packer Civic Gallery, located on the 3rd floor of the Hawke Building, City West Campus, UniSA, North Terrace. While you are there, take the opportunity to confirm your details at the Registration desk. The Registration desk will be staffed throughout the conference from 8 am.

A nearby student computer pool (GK 3-21) with 20 computers has also been booked and a guest log on will be available for delegates on the day prior to as well as the two days of the conference. See also the Staying Connected post.

The current program is now available on the web site. Do have a look as there are a range of interesting presentations, excellent keynote speakers, workshops and a poster session. We are very fortunate to have a close association with the Australian Learning and Teaching Council who are supporting assessment grant holders to participate in the conference.

The Conference proceedings will be available on a USB memory stick as a part of your registration materials (ISBN 978-0-646-50442-1). In the week following the conference the papers will be available online via the website. A hard copy of the Program and book of abstracts will also be part of your registration materials. The Copyright of the papers remains with the authors who have granted permission to the ATN assessment conference to publish their papers on the Web and in print. Authors are welcome to self-archive their papers.

Presenters please note the arrangements provided in an earlier post. There will be cable access to the Internet in the rooms using a special conference log on. Please note that if you wish to give handouts to attendees at your presentation, you will need to ensure that you bring sufficient copies with you.

The Gala Dinner for the conference to be held in the National Wine Centre at the eastern end of North Terrace on November 19 from 7 p.m. There will be entertainment and a dance floor(!). The dress code is ‘smart attire’.

The close of the conference will be held in the Kerry Packer Civic Gallery - with a few drinks and the first performance of our conference song. If you would like to be a part of the song creation or performance, Gavin Sanderson is your contact.
