Plan Your Visit


New Zealand is a fascinating place and if you’re coming from other parts of the world, you should really consider staying longer. There is so much more to see than just the conference! This website helps you find more to do in New Zealand:

The Symposium Headquarters

We’ve booked out the local hotel to accommodate the guests and to host the presentations in their conference section. We have organised the best facilities for our symposium attendees. If you are on the guest list, you will receive an email with the address and details of your accommodation.

The hotel is located in the central part of town and it has easy access to public transport. There is plenty of room in the hotel and you will enjoy your stay.

  • Swimming Pool
  • Study area
  • Bar

So much to do when not talking water!

Getting Here

Most major airlines fly to Auckland from international destinations. If you’re coming from overseas, this is your first stop in New Zealand! From there you can take a plane to the local airport at our conference headquarters. We’ve booked the hotel that’s only 10 km from the airport. Getting a bus or taxi from the airport is easy and you can ask us for help in getting from the airport to the conference centre.

Living it Up

This conference will be the biggest one we’ve held yet. There are at least 20 speakers at different events. Most are held in the main conference theatre and you can find the programme guide for that here. There are also speakers on more recent papers presenting at the conference centre. Keep an eye out on your email inbox to see any updates to the programme. We expect it to be an action packed five days at the conference. We look forward to seeing you here!
