Welcome to NMC2019
We wish to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which NMC2019 will convene, the Ngunnawal people. We wish to acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of the city of Canberra and the region.
The Conference Design Committee has put together a packed three-day conference program, with eleven Plenary Speakers, and more than 130 presentations across seven concurrent streams. NMC2019 has focused on encouraging delegate participation through interactive sessions in which the presentation formats include: mini-workshops, interactive panels, collaborative conversations, and traditional oral presentations. The high number of presentations has meant that Days 2 and 3 will start at 8:30am, and presentations on Day 2 will not conclude until 5:30pm. On Day 3, the formal conference program does not conclude until 4:30pm, after which we will host a Farewell Reception that includes entrusting the conference to its hosts for 2021.
