The 25th International Symposium of the ANZFSS will be held at the Hilton Brisbane Hotel between the 11th and 15th September 2022. The theme for the Brisbane symposium is “Forensics: Designing the Future”. The ANZFSS 2022 program will include a four-day scientific program, several social events, and for the first time to an ANZFSS symposium, a wellness program.
The scientific program is being designed as a face-to-face event, however virtual and hybrid options are being considered should these formats be needed. After years of virtual conferences, we are confident that the ANZFSS 2022 Brisbane Symposium will again be a face-to-face event, just like the Perth symposium four years ago in 2018.
Supporting the scientific program, are many members of the greater ANZFSS and forensic community who have agreed to act as discipline chairs or contribute to the discipline subcommittees. The contribution from these members is invaluable and appreciated by the organising committee. The full list of the discipline chairs can be found @ www.anzfss2022.com/discipline-chairs.
Also supporting the scientific program are our plenary speakers, whose breadth of knowledge and experience traverses many disciplines within the forensic sciences. Our plenary speakers include Dr Christina Baxter, Professor Shari Forbes, Mr Alan Grimmer, Mr Troy O’Malley, Dr Michael Taylor, and Dr Angela Williamson. The biographies for each of these amazing speakers can be found @ www.anzfss2022.com/speakers.
The social program will include several functions during the symposium, all of which are included in the registration fees. These events include the pre-symposium Welcome drinks on the Sunday evening (11th Sept 2022) at the Hilton Brisbane Hotel; followed by a Theme night on the Tuesday evening (13th Sept) with the theme and venue to be announced; and the grand finale to the symposium is the Gala dinner on the Thursday evening (15th Sept). The Gala dinner will be held at the Main Auditorium at the Brisbane City Hall.
The Wellness program will offer delegates the opportunity to attend daily pre-symposium activities around Brisbane City with a professional fitness trainer or attend one of the local gymnasiums and their selection of group fitness classes. The wellness program will also have opportunities for delegates to attend mindfulness sessions during the day.
Around town in Brisbane whilst the symposium is underway, the Brisbane Festival will be playing at various venues across the City and the Southbank Precinct. The Brisbane Festival is a city-wide festival that runs for three weeks (2-24 Sept 2022) that celebrates art, music and theatre culminating in a firework spectacular on the last night known as Riverfire.
