Accommodations and Insurance

The local organising committee will not arrange the accommodation, but will provide a list of hotels that are connected to the conference venue in walking distance. We will provide delicious lunch and dinner for you. If you have a specific dietary requirement, please make a selection from the file "Specific Dietary Requirement" and send the file to Mr Zhaokun Yang (yanzy044@mymail.unisa.edu.au)


Registration fees do not include insurance of any kind. It is recommended that participants take out their own general travel insurance. It is suggested that the insurance policy should also cover loss of fees/deposit, airfares, accommodation charges, medical expenses, loss or damage to personal property and repatriation expenses. The insurance should cover loss arising from the cancellation of the conference by the organisers or a person’s inability to attend due to any reason whatsoever. No responsibility is taken by the conference managers for any person not holding insurance.

Visa Requirement for International Attendees

As a participant/attendee

If you are planning to visit Australia to attend a business event such as a conference, seminar, trade fair or expo as a participant or an attendee (that is, you will not be working, entertaining, or being paid to contribute), you may be eligible for one of the following Visitor visas:

  • Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) (subclass 601)
  • eVisitor (subclass 651)
  • Visitor visa (subclass 600) in the Business Visitor stream.

You must not be intending to:

  • work for or provide services to a business or organisation in Australia or
  • sell goods or services to the Australian public.


A Visitor visa may also be appropriate if you are undertaking a genuine unpaid volunteer role, but only if:

  • the voluntary work is incidental to the main purpose of your visit to Australia as a tourist
  • the work would not otherwise be undertaken in return for wages by an Australian resident
  • the work is genuinely voluntary and you are not paid for it, other than for meals, accommodation or out of pocket living expenses
  • the main benefit of the voluntary work is not to a commercial organisation
  • the voluntary work is short term (generally three months) and of benefit to the community.

Further information about the specific requirements of Visitor visas is available on the Department’s website: www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa/Appl/Visitor
