Registration for TraceNZ Conference 2020
Hosted by: University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand
Location: Avantidrome, Cambridge, New Zealand
Monday 10 February - Tuesday 11 February 2020
Optional workshop on Wednesday 12 February 2020
The Trace Elements Conference will offer the best opportunity to present and discuss your results to a broad audience from the trace element community in New Zealand, and overseas. It will also be a forum to see the latest technology from a number of instrument manufacturers. Come and network with other New Zealand researchers and practitioners in the trace elements area. The 2019 conference will be a great way for researchers interested in trace elements to:
• Find out what other New Zealand researchers are up to
• Form and renew professional links and research partnerships
• Present research and monitoring results
• Seek valuable feedback on research projects – ideals for students
• Identify possible examiners – a great opportunity for supervisors
• Learn about the latest analytical techniques and approaches and who has relevant instrumentation for your research
• Hear and/or contribute to central government policy initiatives
Registration is $300 for the full two days (excluding accommodation) and $100 for students before 13 December 2019 (increases to $350 and $150 after 13 Dec for working and student rate, respectively).
Morning and afternoon tea and lunch will be included for both days and an evening function will be held on Monday 10 February.
