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're lining 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 are now open— we hope to see you there!
