11th International Conference | January 8-11, 2015

hosted by Victoria University of Wellington and Massey University, Wellington
at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa

WellingtonThank you to all of the program participants and registrants who attended the conference in Wellington. We had 400 registrants representing 35 countries. Aside from some lost luggage along the way, the conference went well and feedback was positive. If you have any suggestions for improving future conferences, please let us know. We are working on ways to mitigate last minute cancellations and no shows by participants, and welcome your ideas.

WEAI extends its appreciation to Morris Altman for his tireless efforts at getting this conference off the ground and getting it moved to the incredible Museum of New Zealand TePapa Tongarewa. Without his laying the groundwork for the conference and for obtaining sponsorships from the New Zealand Treasury and the Reserve Bank of New Zealand for the keynote addresses, the conference would never have been as successful as it turned out. Thank you, Professor Altman.
