Three major conferences are in the works, as BESydney announced, demonstrating the city’s strong comeback post-pandemic. The Cognitive Science Society conference CogSci 2023 will run from 26-29 July and will attract more than 800 researchers from around the world who will discuss the nature of the human mind. The 67th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference is to be held in November 2024 and is expected to attract 700 delegates from 53 Commonwealth countries over six days. Both these events will be held at the International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney). The ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) Web Conference Steering Committee has selected Sydney to host The Web Conference (WebConf) in 2025, attracting 1,000 people from around the world.
BESydney CEO, Lyn Lewis-Smith said: “These bid wins demonstrate that we are continuing where we left off pre-pandemic, with success attracting the world’s top events that will help accelerate the development and growth of homegrown industries of the future.”
