As recently advised, as a first, ComBio has been reduced to a three day meeting running from 3 – 5 October, with the popular Career Development Forum being held on 2 October and registration also opening for those who want to beat the morning rush when the conference opens early on 3 October. Due to the shorter meeting, the early member registration fees have been reduced substantially, with the student member early registration fee being $250 and the full member early registration fee being $680. The conference secretariat has also held blocks of very reasonably priced accommodation that are very close to the venue. One bedroom apartments start at $169/night where two people can share and have their own space with a sofa bed in the living room. Two bedroom apartments are only $239/night and this costing is for up to four persons (so would cost $60/night per person with 4 sharing an apartment. There are also limited three bedroom apartments available. The other two hotel blocks held range from $114/night (for up to 2 persons sharing) to 5 star InterContinental accommodation at a modest $205/night (for up to 2 persons sharing). Both of the hotels are a one minute walk to the Adelaide Convention Centre (so next door or directly across the road) and the apartments are only a 7 minute walk.
