Event Overview
Welcome message:

On behalf of my colleagues in New Zealand I am delighted to invite you to Wellington for the 47th Annual Scientific

Congress in 2015.

Wellington is an exciting place. It deserves its reputation as the 'Coolest Little Capital in the World' and is buzzing with things to see and do. Nestled in an extraordinary natural harbour the city has a fantastic food, coffee, wine, and craft beer scene, has a wealth of musical talent in all genres and thriving visual and performing arts communities as well as outstanding museums. Virtually a stone's throw from the city centre there are stunning mountain bike, walking and running tracks and a beautiful native wildlife sanctuary. The world renowned wine regions of the Wairarapa and Nelson/ Marlborough are within easy reach.

There are direct flights to Wellington from many Australian cities and once here it is easy to explore all the rest of beautiful New Zealand. Our invited speakers and industry supporters promise to make the Congress inspiring and challenging for us all and we are planning a social programme that will be unforgettable.

Mark your diaries now! I look forward to seeing you.
