The Australasian Network for Ecology and Transportation (ANET) is excited to announce that our next conference will be held from April 30th to May 2nd 2018 in the RACV Goldfields Resort in Creswick, Victoria. The theme for the conference is Connecting Nature, Connecting People, and we are busy creating a program that will be of immense value to delegates from government, industry, research and community groups.  The program will include the latest findings in environmentally-sensitive linear infrastructure research and practice from around the world, as well as ample opportunity for networking and creating collaborations. 

At just 1 hour from Melbourne, the regional venue is easily accessible by train or car, and we will be running a number of shuttles from downtown Melbourne and the Melbourne International Airport to Creswick.  The well-equipped facility and on-site accommodation is nestled in natural bushland and is perfectly located to inspect VicRoads projects along the Calder Freeway and Western Highway. 

The ANET 2018 Connecting Nature, Connecting People conference is co-hosted by the Environmental Institute of Australia and New Zealand (EIANZ), and is proudly sponsored by VicRoads.

The call for abstracts and proposals for presentations, posters and workshops will be issued in the near future.

Engaging with industry is a key focus of the conference and there will be opportunity for industry to participate through trade displays, advertising and sponsorship.

More conference details will come to light as we get closer to the date, and will be posted here and at https://www.eianz.org/events/event/anet2018.
