We understand the financial and logistic difficulties of flying to Canberra from interstate. Given, flights to Sydney are considerably cheaper and more frequent, the organising committee will provide free transportation from the Sydney Domestic Airport and Central to the Canberra city centre - a 2.5 hr ride, at no extra cost. All travel to and from the various national venues are also covered by the team!
As part of our effort to host an inclusive and affordable event the team has joined forces with YHA Canberra. Having booked out an entire floor, well maintained (trust us we’ve checked them out) multishare, twin and single ensuite rooms are available from $39-120 per night respectively (a 20% discount). This offer will last from the 13th to 22nd of July, so you are welcome to stay in Canberra after the event has ended. If you wish to book this please select the correct registration option and make clear who (if any) you wish to share with. We hope you enjoy the swimming pool, sauna, free WiFi and nearby hipster cafes (and did we mention? Free breakfast on us).
The entire conference, including evening events, will be catered as part of your ticket price! Breakfast, lunch, and morning/afternoon teas will be available each day - besides our provided catering, the ADFA cafe will be open at all times too. Evening event catering will be a mix of formal dinners, buffet stations and substantial canapes. Please don’t forget to specify any dietary requirements when you apply.
Aerospace Futures 2018 is aiming to be the most inclusive conference yet, so we would be ecstatic to see undergraduates, postgraduates and young professionals all attend. We are particularly keen to see more non-engineering students, so if you’re in science, business, law, politics, etc. -- don’t be shy!
We would love to have everyone attend, but due to venue capacities we need to limit our numbers to 150 undergraduates, 50 postgraduates and 50 young professionals. Realistically we do not expect 30 years of experience and your own Wikipedia page to be selected, passion is what we look for. However, the application process will be highly competitive so put your best foot forward.
50 Early bird tickets will be available for a limited time following registration opening, but remaining 200 general tickets will be open for purchase until late June. The ticket price you pay will be based on when you submit your application. Please note that this does not include optional facilitated accommodation costs.
All applicants will be added to a waitlist on eventbrite. Successful delegates will be asked to purchase tickets at a later stage.
