We are pleased to invite you to The University of Queensland, Brisbane to participate in the 2018 National TechNet Conference.

The theme of this year’s conference is SuperTechs, ‘From invisibility cloaks to capes; revealing your value’, reflecting the growing pressure for the tertiary sector technical community to demonstrate our worth, and recognising the opportunities for meaningful learning, networking and profile-raising that arise through the conference itself.

The conference is open to all technical and workshop staff from tertiary institutions across Australia, New Zealand and Oceania.

The conference will take place in the picturesque Global Change Institute's Living Building on the St Lucia Campus, 22 - 23 November, 2018. Optional field trips will run on Wednesday 21 November and facility tours will be offered throughout the conference.The conference dinner will be held on Thursday, 22 November.

There will be plenty of opportunities to network, learn and share. A strength of TechNet conferences is peer-led cross disciplinary professional development that offers something for everyone. As well, our aim is to draw from UQ’s broad range of fields and disciplines in teaching and research to accommodate special interests for delegates from science, engineering, medicine, nursing & midwifery, archaeology, media & communications, creative industries, workshops, safety-focussed roles and more.
