Conference Venue

All sessions will be held with buildings 10 and 11 at the UTS City Campus, 235 Jones St, Ultimo. Both building 10 and 11 are internally connected which makes wayfinding easy.

Building 11

In 2014, UTS unveiled the single-largest facility to be constructed under UTS’s $1 billion City Campus Master Plan. It accommodates the Faculty of Engineering and IT, along with the majority of its specialist facilities, for the first time in the faculty’s history. Rising 13 storeys above the ground, the building is encased in a dramatic ‘binary screen’ and features state-of-the-art teaching, learning and research spaces throughout.

The building’s design is as striking on the inside as it is on the outside, reflecting the university’s position at the cutting edge of creativity, innovation and technology.

Conference delegates will be able to enjoy the spaces as two plenary sessions will be hosted in building 11, and so will all conference rest times/meals.

Building 10

Building 10 is an award-winning architectural masterpiece which has seen the transformation of the historic Fairfax Building into a modern and contemporary facility. The building was also used by SOCOG for the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000 as their headquarters.

The building has recently undergone another upgrade of the teaching facilities which now offers a range of bright and airy classrooms. These classrooms will be host to the conference break out sessions and workshops.
