Madagascar Workshop at ASEG-2013




The Crowne Plaza Hotel is located a short walk away from the Melbourne Conference and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), see, and the attached maps. Most workshops will be held in various rooms within the hotel, but the room may be changed to accommodate final registration numbers. A screen in the lobby will help you to locate the correct room for your workshop.


Most of you will have pre-registered and you will only need to collect your name tag from the registration desk which we will set up in the hotel lobby. Please allow some extra time to do this as there are several concurrent workshops on most days and a large number of delegates participating. Late registration, at the registration desk, may be possible if there is room available, but no guarantees.
