Save the date for BEAN 2023

The annual BEAN forum in 2023 will be held on Thursday, 14 December from 10am-4pm (Melb time) at Monash Uni in Melbourne, hosted by AProf Chris Thompson. This is our first face-to-face BEAN since so many plans were scuttled by Covid, and after a hiatus in 2022.

Program details will be online soon at:

Registration via Eventbrite – rego fees TBC.

The program will include some short, invited presentations that we hope will be illuminating and engaging, and a chance for YOU to do a quick 5 minute/3 slides talk on something that you would like to share from your experiences.

If you are interested in presenting a short talk or poster, contact
