Registration Information for AAC06

The venue for Day 1 of the Conference is the Maroochy Surf Club (where there are plenty of accommodation options nearby) and for Days 2 and 3, the Sippy Downs campus of The University of the Sunshine Coast. Bring the fruits of your best thinking for sure but don't forget to pack your togs (a fairly Queensland word for swim gear) and whatever you need for long beach walks.

Gordon Preston Prize

The Gordon Preston Prize is awarded for the best presentation at the AAC given by a current student based at an Australian or overseas university. The presentations will be judged by a panel appointed by the executive committee. The winner of the prize will receive $300. The Rules for the Gordon Preston Prize are available on the website of the Australian Algebra Group.

Conference Support for Students

The Executive of the Australia Algebra Group is yet to announce what support will be available for 2022. We will post any announcements here as soon as details are confirmed.

Getting around

Check for direct flights and if arriving at the Sunshine Coast Airport, it is a 20 minute car ride to the accommodation options around Maroochydore Beach and the Surf Club. The Surf Club is about 20 minutes by car to the Sippy Downs campus. If you are arriving at Brisbane Airport, the Sunshine Coast is a little over an hour's drive away and there are shuttle services operating. We are organising a local shuttle bus for the return trip between the Club and the campus on Days 2 and 3.
