After a three-year hiatus, we're thrilled to welcome the community back to EAGxAustralia in 2022! This year's conference will be held at the Australian National University in Canberra, from July 8th-10th.
We've lined up a range of speakers from around the world, including experts on global health and poverty, AI safety, animal welfare, and climate change. The programme will also include workshops, meetups, and plenty of time for networking and socialising.
Applications for the conference have now closed, but you can still claim a ticket for the Friday night keynote. This event is open to the public, including those who are not attending the full weekend conference. You can find further information about the keynote, including instructions on claiming your ticket here.
