Dear Friends, Colleagues, and Members,

It is a great pleasure and an honour to extend to you a warm invitation to join us at the 11th HITH Society Annual Scientific Meeting, on behalf of the Conference Organising Committee. The conference will be held in Brisbane 21st-23rd November 2018 at the Stamford Plaza, Brisbane CBD.

The HITH 2018 Conference will provide a wonderful forum for you to refresh your knowledge base and explore HITH innovations. The HITH Conference will strive to offer plenty of networking opportunities, to meet and interact with colleagues from Australia, New Zealand and of course, our invited speakers, as well as sponsors and exhibitors. The tradition of providing a quality conference, along with our social program will continue in 2018.

The city of Brisbane is a thriving metropolis that offers everything a great capital city should from Southbank’s beautiful parklands and city beach to the Newstead’s Powerhouse. Other attractions on the doorstep of the conference venue, include strolling through the botanical gardens or along the river walk, with Queen Street Mall just a short walk away. Brisbane celebrates the iconic Queensland lifestyle.

We look forward to welcoming our keynote speaker, who will give us topical messages and lessons that are relevant to HITH in Australasia.

We hope you can join us at our 2018 conference.
