Join us in Canberra for EAGxAustralia 2022

 

Applications are now open for EAGxAustralia, to be held at the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra, from July 8th-10th.

Now in its 6th year, EAGxAustralia is a sell-out conference for the effective altruism community in Australia and Oceania. Our events have been helping people do good better since 2015: whether through their careers, donations, or other aspects of their lives.

While COVID prevented us from holding a conference in 2020/2021, we’re thrilled to announce the return of EAGxAustralia in 2022. We’ve lined up a range of speakers from around the world, including experts on global health and poverty, AI safety, animal welfare, and climate change. The programme will also include workshops, meetups, and plenty of time for networking and socialising.

The conference kicks off with a keynote at 7pm on Friday night— this event is open to the public, including those who are not attending the full weekend conference. You can find further information about the keynote, including instructions on claiming your ticket here. Saturday and Sunday (the 9th and 10th) will feature full-day programmes, with talks and other events running from 9am til 6pm on both days.

Applications close at 11:59 PM June 28th— so be sure sure to apply soon if you’re interested in attending!

 

 


 

Further Info & FAQs

 

Who is the conference for?

EAGxAustralia is aimed at people with an understanding of the core ideas of effective altruism. E.g. people who have completed an introductory course, or who have engaged with more than 20 hours of effective altruism related content. We would encourage all people described here to apply. If you’re unsure about whether to apply, please err on the side of applying!

 

Applications

You’ll need to apply to attend EAGxAustralia— once accepted, you’ll be able to purchase your ticket. If you’ve attended an EAGx conference in the past, most of the fields can be prepopulated with your responses from previous applications if you log in at the start.

We strongly recommend that you take the time to thoroughly fill out the application, as the information you provide will also be used to help you make the most out of the conference. Applications close June 24th, two weeks before the conference, though we strongly encourage people to apply as soon as they can. 

 

Travel Assistance

You’ll be able to apply for financial assistance for your travel expenses in the application form. Please do apply for support if the cost of attending would be prohibitive for you.

 

Visas

We’ve compiled some guidance for attendees who may require a visa to enter Australia and participate in the conference. We strongly encourage attendees do their own research into whether they require a visa, and which visa is best. None of our guidance is official legal advice.

 

COVID-19

Our current COVID-19 policy is viewable here. The most important point to note is that we are requiring attenedees to be fully vaccinated, including a booster dose if eligible
