Please join us for the 2016 Perth Data Management Symposium on August 4, 2016.

In response to the current economic conditions this year, the Perth Data Management Symposium will be a one day event - August 4, 2016 - and we have highly discounted the registration rates to make it easier to attend.

We invite you to come participate as we work together towards collective action and community building. PPDM Association Events are specifically designed to facilitate collaborative idea sharing, discussion and networking. You can expect to participate in numerous discussions, workshops and activities. Learn from your colleagues’ experiences, ask questions, build relationships and make key face to face connections. Engage in dynamic sessions and attend information packed presentations.

Agenda & Schedule

The final agenda is now available! Abstracts are also available for review.

Please note that all speakers will be offered a 50% discount on the registration price. Speakers must register at least one month in advance of the event to retain their speaking spot.

Please note, PPDM Conferences and Seminars are designed to inform and educate the data management community. An objective, technical presentation that meets the educational needs of the audience will do the best job of enhancing the credibility of the speaker, the speaker's employer, and the PPDM Association. Speakers may include their company name or logo on visual and hand out materials, and the speaker's affiliation will be announced in written materials. Speakers should avoid any appearance of commercialism in their session. As a general guideline, speakers from companies that sell products or services should focus on the business problem that the product or service solves. Speakers from firms selling industry products and services are expected not to focus on their company's products or capabilities during the presentation as there are sponsorship levels that would allow for promotional purposes.

A hotel room block has not been arranged for this event but there are several nearby hotels including:
