Wagga 2016 Welcome


We are pleased to announce that the 2016 Wagga Wagga meeting will be held once again at its traditional venue, the Wagga Wagga campus of the Charles Sturt University, from Tuesday the 2 February to Friday the 5 February 2016.

Registration and welcome drinks will be on the afternoon of Tuesday the 2 February, followed by the evening meal, and the scientific program will start on Wednesday 3 February. The conference dinner will be held on Wednesday 3 February and the program will conclude with lunch on Friday 5 February. The Wagga campus accommodation includes breakfast, lunch and dinner.

This meeting is an opportunity for all condensed matter and materials scientists to meet in an informal atmosphere to discuss their current research, future direction and other matters of importance in the field. The traditional informal Wagga format will apply, with emphasis on contributed poster papers plus a number of invited oral papers and selected contributed oral papers. Students are particularly encouraged to submit oral presentations. The organising committee would welcome suggestions concerning invited speakers to deliver broad keynote presentations and, depending on submitted papers, the program may comprise some focussed sessions such as soft-matter science, studies of surfaces and interfaces, photonics, etc.

The traditional delights of the Wagga venue include the beautiful weather, the nearby vineyards, the abounding wildlife on campus, and the attractive countryside. We invite you to take this special opportunity to enjoy an interesting scientific program at a wonderful and characteristic Australian location.

If you are a regular “Waggarite” and have some interesting anecdotes or images relating to any of the earlier Wagga meetings, please pass them on to Glen Stewart (g.stewart@adfa.edu.au) who will arrange for them to be incorporated into that site.
