Extended Deadline for Abstracts and Early-bird Registration for upcoming ORSNZ conference

We have just extended the deadline for abstract submissions and early-bird registration by 1 week, these are now due by Friday November 8.

We have made a minor change to the programme, with Prof. Vicky Mabin’s plenary address entitled: Use of Reframing in Evidence-Based Modelling to Support Policy Decisions now scheduled for Tuesday morning (December 3).

We are also fortunate to now have a keynote address by Dr James Tipping from the Electricity Authority, which has been scheduled for Wednesday (December 4), to kick-off the sessions on energy and emissions. These sessions will conclude with a panel discussion chaired by Adjunct Prof. Grant Read.

More details about the programme are available here.
