This year’s meeting was held in Auckland, at the University of Auckland’s Business school.

There was an astronomy miniconference held during the main meeting. JJ Eldridge and Pauline Harris (Victoria) gave awesome talks, as did my PhD students Ashna Sharan and Alex Li and MSc student Martin Donachie. I was in the happy position of being able to introduce these able students and the work they are doing with me, leaving me to pontificate about other things.

All the talks were recorded, and edited for your viewing pleasure. They are available at

It was a great event, and a great crowd. I didn’t expect to be talking to a packed room! All credit to Jessica Smith for organising the miniconference!
