Partners and families are very welcome. The cost for the participant is included in the registration fee. Ticket for an accompanying adult is AU$88 including GST. Children under 18 are free.
Internet and computer access
UNSW has eduroam to provide free wireless access for visitors whose home institutions also have eduroam. For more information on eduroam see http://www.eduroam.org or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eduroam. Please check with your institution whether you have access to eduroam and for instructions on how to set up eduroam (this depends on your home institution and not on UNSW, hence it is recommended to set up eduroam before traveling to Sydney).
Wireless internet account (different from eduroam) and/or computer access on campus can be provided, but will need to be requested through the online registration system before the conference.
