We are very excited to announce that the HAI conference comes to the Southern Hemisphere and Australia for the first time. It will be proudly hosted in Parramatta, one of the vibrant and multicultural hubs of Sydney. The city of Sydney is the tourist and business centre of Australia. The conference will be held in Western Sydney University’s new Parramatta City Campus (1PSQ) on the 9th floor where stunning views of the city’s landscape are magnificent. This flagship 10-storey campus is located in the Parramatta Central Business District (CBD). It is close to public transport, including trains (only a few minutes walking to the Parramatta train station), ferries and buses and is easily accessible from Sydney CBD. Parramatta is the heart of Sydney’s west that features beautiful parks and colonial sites as well as world-class food, arts and entertainment.
