Events calender

The WA Chapter has a very active technical programme. In 2013 we hosted 9 technical presentations, and hosted the 40th Annual IAH International Congress with extensive papers, posters, and courses and a huge international attendance. The WA committee has arranged a social evening in recent years which appears to becoming more popular each year.  The next few events are shown below; the complete schedule of events for the year is also available.
