Who should attend?
Researchers who are 0.2 full-time equivalent (FTE) or greater on a CRC project are expected to attend. If you are unsure if you are 0.2 FTE on a project, contact PBCRC.
Anyone who is not 0.2 FTE is welcome to attend, however they will be required to pay for their registration, accommodation and flight costs.
Attendance at the SX is not restricted to people already involved in the CRC, with anyone wishing to develop partnerships with the CRC – or learn more about plant biosecurity in general – also welcome to attend.
Who pays for registration?
Registration for the full SX is $AUD 750. PBCRC will cover the registration of researchers who are 0.2 FTE or greater on a CRC project, PhD students and Program Leaders. PBCRC may cover registration for other delegates, at the discretion of the organisers. Your invitation will set out the details of payment required.
Anyone else wishing to attend is required to pay for registration, which is competitively priced given PBCRC only endeavours to recover costs.
If you are unsure if your registration should be covered, see your invitation or contact PBCRC.
Who pays for travel?
To ensure no PBCRC Participant is disadvantaged by the location of the SX, PBCRC will book and pay for travel for researchers of 0.2 FTE or greater on a PBCRC project, PhD students, Board members, Participant representatives, End-user Advocates and Program Leaders. PBCRC may cover travel for other delegates, at the discretion of the organisers. Your invitation will set out the details of payment required.
PBCRC also offers low cost airport transfers for delegates not covered by PBCRC, which can be selected when registering.
Who pays for accommodation?
Each delegate or their employer is required to pay for SX accommodation (the exception is eligible PhD students, where the CRC will cover all costs). PBCRC may cover travel for other delegates, at the discretion of the organisers. Your invitation will set out the details of payment required.
To secure your accommodation booking you will be required to provide credit card details on your SX registration form. The credit card will not be charged until you check out after the SX, however if your employer is paying for your accommodation please ensure they are aware of this arrangement prior to registering.
To secure the lowest accommodation prices, PBCRC will be making a block booking for SX attendees. Please do not book your accommodation directly with the resort - you will be able to select your preferred accommodation option during registration.
