SYMPOSIUM ARCHIVES

A record of  Symposia past — 
Ideally this archive will include published  Proceedings, and official programs, but ephemera would be wonderful too, photographs, notes, and reflections.  

Please get in touch if you have goodies to share.  

The archive project will be discussed at the Bendigo Symposium.
