The Conference dinner will be held on Wednesday 29th November at 7pm at the Refectory at Sydney University (https://www.hostcosydney.com/venues/refectory/), catered by HostCo. This includes both plant-based and other options. The optional Conference dinner cost includes a two-course dinner and drinks. The Conference dinner is where the APSA Prize winners will be announced.
