The Australian New Zealand Higher Education Users Group (HEUG) invites you to attend the 2015 Alliance Down Under Conference. The Conference will be held at the Gold Coast commencing Wednesday 4 - 6 November 2015.

The program will cater for the interests of all aspects of the use of PeopleSoft and Oracle technologies in our industry and will be supported by our key vendors. In addition to the main conference program, there will be an Executive Forum and Academic Registrars' Forum to be held during the course of the conference. There will also be pre-conference workshops held in the days leading up to the conference – details will be advised.

There will be keynote speakers and presentations across five tracks: Technical, HR, Finance, Student and CRM. Presentations which cross tracks are encouraged!

As usual, this is an ideal opportunity to network with your colleagues from other institutions from around Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia. At the same time you may wish to take the opportunity to explore the beautiful Gold Coast.
