The conference program is divided into two parts:
- two days of training workshops in machine learning and digital skills, and
- a three-day cross-disciplinary meeting centered around a hack-day.
Registration for each part is separate - come for the full week, the workshops or just the conference.
The hack day in particular is a key focus of the meeting and a fantastic opportunity to bootstrap cross-disciplinary projects. Our generous industry partners are sending experts in machine-learning, computer vision, visualisation, data-wrangling, sensors and aerial platforms to help you achieve your vision:
Invited Speakers and Demonstrators
We are lining up fantastic speakers to inspire you and demonstrators to help you achieve your hack-day goals. Stay tuned for more announcements as the list grows here.

She has extensive astrophysics research experience and and was project scientist for the Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) telescope, before founding a medical imaging company to develop an innovative radiation therapy machine for treating cancer.
Associate Prof Shawn Ross - eResearch Workflows
Trained as an historian, Shawn also has over 20 years of fieldwork experience in archaeology, including excavation, pedestrian survey, satellite remote sensing, ceramics processing, technical photography, and data management. Shawn has also directed the Federated Archaeological Information Management Systems (FAIMS) project, which is building information technology infrastructure for archaeology and other fieldwork-based disciplines. FAIMS has led to the development of a new research direction, examining the impact of digital technologies on archaeological research and developing approaches to building robust digital infrastructure in 'small' disciplines like archaeology.
