Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is a great pleasure to announce that Brisbane will be the location of the 12th Australasian Lymphology Association Conference to be held from 17th-19th May, 2018. Coming off the back of a very successful Asia Pacific Lymphoedema Conference in Darwin, we are aiming to deliver yet another exceptional event.

The Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre was recently voted as the best convention centre in the world and promises to provide a comprehensive and inviting venue for our delegates. Our conference theme is 'Stronger Together', reflecting the bringing together of health professionals from different disciplines with the common aim of improving outcomes for people with lymphatic dysfunction.

Our scientific committee is in the midst of developing an excellent program to enhance our knowledge and to pique our interest for future development of lymphoedema practice.

We hope you can join us in Brisbane in 2018. Beautiful one day, perfect the next!

Dr Teresa Lee

Conference Convenor

We are thrilled to invite you to join other passionate lymphoedema practitioners, researchers and consumers for the 12th Australasian Lymphology Association Conference, which will be held in Brisbane in May 2018. The scientific program is being designed to stimulate discussion and ideas, leading all of us to return to our practices and research labs with new networks and colleagues in tow.

“Stronger Together”, our conference theme, highlights the opportunities for success we have when we work together to solve the big unanswered questions that lymphoedema brings.

This 12th Australasian Lymphology Association conference will bring together internationally and nationally-renowned keynote and invited speakers, covering a range of topics that exemplifies the complex nature of our field. From the lab to the bedside, new concepts and findings will stimulate us to find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat lymphatic diseases and disorders.

The city of Brisbane is an ideal location for this conference. Brisbane City vision for its growth and development focuses on working together to achieve a common goal. Just like us in the lymphoedema community, they understand that we are “Stronger Together”.

We are looking forward to seeing you all in beautiful Brisbane!

Dr Liz Dylke

Chair, Scientific Committee
