Of particular value form the conference was the very high quality of the international speakers who not only provided very exciting papers with terrific examples but they participated in the Conference. The multiple presentations they did really helped to gain a better insight into their thinking, and the language they use, and that assisted in understanding the concepts better. The opportunity to interact with them and to have such access was terrific.
The local speakers were generally very good and gave an insight into what is happening in Australia in this area. Some revealed how far behind or narrow they were looking, while others had over-reached. It’s always good when you see the boundaries being pushed!
