30 August–1 September 2018 ANZMET Conference

University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand

The ANZMET conference is designed from conception as a community-owned event and provides a facilitated networking experience where (1) attendees learn on the first day of each others interests, experience, scientific background, collaboration opportunities and other avenues for outreach (The Round-table Discussion); (2) an open-forum format for rich discourse on spontaneous peer-selected topics (The Peer Session); (3) the delivery of critical updates in the field (Traditional Presentations) and (4) the tailored and vital exposure of young scientists to the wider research community (Rapid-fire Postgraduate Presentation Sessions).

The essence of any conference lies in community-building. A meaningful conference is a safe, supportive and open environment aimed at fostering growth, awareness and learning – and should be attendee-driven. These are the key ingredients for ‘re-engineering the traditional conference’ and are the basis and inspiration behind developing ANZMET as the first peer-driven scientific conference in Australia and New Zealand.
