You are invited to attend the 2019 Alliance Down Under! The Conference will be held in Brisbane, Queensland, 12-14 June 2019.

This program provides an ideal opportunity to network with your colleagues from other institutions, explore emerging technologies and receive insight from your peers into institution based initiates relevant to your track of interest. The program caters to all aspects of the use of PeopleSoft and Oracle technologies in our industry and is supported by our key vendors. In addition to the main conference program, there will be an Executive Forum and Academic Registrars' Forum to be held during the course of the conference. There will also be pre-conference workshops held in the days leading up to the conference – details will be advised.

There will be keynote speakers and presentations across six tracks: Technical, HR, Finance, Student, Customer Experience (CX) and Project and Change Management (PCM). Presentations which cross tracks are encouraged! As usual, this is an ideal opportunity to network with your colleagues from other institutions from around Australia, New Zealand, and South East Asia. At the same time, you may wish to take the opportunity to explore the beautiful city of Brisbane.

We look forward to seeing you in June!
