Complementary WiFi at BCEC

Complementary WiFi is available for all Autumn Symposium delegates within the centre. WiFi is delivered by in-house wireless access points (WAP's) and provides coverage throughout the venue. 

Would like to present? Submit an abstract 

We would also encourage Fellows to consider presenting their research within the free paper session, and thus take the opportunity to share the results of their work with local colleagues first. Refer to abstract page for more details. Abstract submissions is now open.

Let's get together

Finally, the Autumn Symposium continues to be a great forum for Queensland Fellows and trainees to catch up with colleagues and meet with presenters.

Join us for the Welcome Reception on Thursday afternoon 3rd June at 5:00pm for snacks and light refreshments.


The Autumn Symposium has been accredited for CPD hours with ACEM. We will submit your record of attendance to the respective Colleges to award you your hours/ points. A certificate of attendance can be supplied on request.
