22AWC- New dates announced

April 1, 2020

New conference dates announced
10–13 October 2021

The Weed Management Society of South Australia (WMSSA) with the support of Council of Australasian Weeds Societies Inc. (CAWS) have decided to postpone the 22nd Australasian Weeds Conference (22AWC) due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.

The WMSSA and CAWS look forward to co-hosting the event next year and are excited to announce a new date at our venue Adelaide Oval on 10-13 October 2021.

We are now looking forward with optimism to 2021. By delaying the event, we will progress with confidence in our ability to host the conference that everyone knows and loves at a time when society is more positive and secure (note that we will also continue to monitor all advice from the Australian Government and heed their future directive).

Outlined below are a few key pieces of information regarding the status of registration and abstract submissions. Please read this information carefully.

Thank you to everyone who has submitted an abstract. Authors will be contacted regarding their submissions towards the end of this year with the option to modify or change the status of their abstract. Notifications regarding selection into the conference program will be sent shortly after. During this time the abstract portal will remain open allowing for changes to current submissions as well as additional opportunities for new papers.

The decision has been made to keep the conference registration portal open allowing delegates the chance to get in early and pay their registration this financial or calendar year. Individuals who have registered up until now will be contacted by the conference organisers.

Thank you for your continual support of the conference and for now, please save the dates in your diaries as 22AWC will be a conference not to be missed!

Kind regards
22AWC Organising Committee
