Programme

Please help us to us shape the format and content of the programme by completing a survey that will ensure both meetings cover the 'state-of-the-art' in terms of topics of greatest interest to those who will be with us in Auckland next year.  The survey has three sections:

We expect the survey to take a little time (about 15 minutes) so please set the time aside as your feedback will be invaluable and we will also be using your responses to inform our conference APP for those attending.
