On behalf of the Colour Society of Australia, the Western Australian Division is proud to announce that the CSA National Conference for 2023, "Colour Sense and Sensibility" will be held in Fremantle, Western Australia, on October 12-14 of this year.  The Organizing Committee of the conference invites you to participate and submit an abstract of a paper you would like to present on this occasion.  It will be a “hybrid” conference where papers can be presented live on site or either live or pre-recorded from a distance by Zoom, so that international presenters can participate before an international audience on Zoom.

The deadline for submission for abstracts of papers will be May 31.  Poster presentations are also welcome, with abstracts due by May 31 also.  Registrations will open on June 16 with an early-bird price for both live and Zoom participants.
