Event Programme

The inaugural Australian Astro Imaging Conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Surfers Paradise from Friday the 8th to Sunday the 10th of July 2011. The conference programme is outlined here on the left.

“Workshops” are intended to be instructional and content will be advised. They will cover a range of levels from beginner to expert, and will definitely be of interest to all attendees.

“General Sessions” will be delivered by our international guests as well as well-known Australian imagers and industry partners. A list of presenters is included on this website.

The conference dinner is an optional addition to your programme. It is intended to present the soon-to-be announced, ‘AAIC Award for Outstanding Achievement 2011‘ during the conference dinner.
