What do you need to know if you are heading to New Zealand?

If you are heading to New Zealand to visit the HAI 2022 there are a few facts that come in handy.

Our conference is in December. For New Zealand, that means it is summer and you can expect temperatures around 14-28 degrees celsius. It is recommendable to pack a variety of different clothing as the weather tends to change suddenly. And bring good sunscreen!

English, next to Te Reo and NZ Sign Language is the official language, so you will have no problems communicating in everyday encounters. Have a chat!

New Zealand uses three prong angled power sockets at 230/240 volts, so bring adapters if you need them.

You can use all major credit cards if you want to pay for something. Taxes are included in the prices that are on display, so there is no need to do any calculations. Want to know more? Have a look at our pages about the venue, possible activities, and if you want to know what you need to bring with regard to documents we got you covered at our travel page as well.

The HAI2022 conference is organized in collaboration with the University of Canterbury’s AI Conference that will take place on 9 December 2022. Please consider attending/contributing to the UC AI conference right after the HAI2022 conference.

UC AI is a newly-formed transdisciplinary cluster for artificial intelligence research. UC AI encompasses researchers from UC’s departments and schools of Computer Science and Software Engineering, Mathematics and Statistics, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, Psychology, Education, the Humanities and Social Sciences, and the New Zealand Human Interface Technology Laboratory. UC AI’s Conference also provides an opportunity to celebrate Ada Lovelace’s birthday in December.
