The 2014 Australasian Ethics Network Conference has now ended.
The AEN took place between 3-5 December 2014 at the University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia and was very well attended with outstanding presentations from all speakers and very successful pre-conference workshops.
It was an honour for Sydney to host this year’s conference as this coincided with the 20th anniversary of the first AEN meeting held at University of Technology Sydney in 1994.
We would like to thank everybody who presented, attended and contributed.
Presentation slides will be available to all delegates early in the New Year.
