QLD Autumn Symposium Program 2021

Autumn Symposium Program

The Symposium Committee members of Dr Sharyn Smith (Chair), Dr Darren Powrie and Dr Kim Hansen who have been organising the Queensland Autumn Symposium for over ten years are delighted to announce the 16th Annual QLD Autumn Symposium. 

With the wealth of expertise and experience, the QLD Autumn Symposium Committee have grown the Symposium from a small meeting, gaining momentum every year to successfully delivering an event that has sold out in the past four years.
