QCD Downunder 2017
The aim of the workshop was to bring together a number of specialists in non-perturbative field theory as well as others working in the areas of hadron physics and related fields.
The workshop was held at the Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort in Queensland, Australia, from Monday July 10th to Friday July 14th, 2017.

The registration fee is AUD$475. Registration includes:
- participation in the conference
- welcome reception
- lunch on each day of the workshop
- conference dinner
- morning and afternoon tea/coffee breaks
Non-local participants, who are not CSSM/CoEPP students or staff, wishing to register should please visit the registration page and complete the registration process found there.
Please note, local participants should not register through the above registration page. Instead, please contact the CSSM office to be registered and to organise accommodation.
We have negotiated a special rate for workshop participants at the Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort.
To make a booking at the special rate, non-local participants should please proceed through the registration process, including paying the registration fee, and then email Reservations at the Novotel Cairns (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request the type of room they require, quoting the reference QCD2017.
Two room types are available for participants:
- Standard Resort – Single (king bed) including buffet breakfast for 1 person at the rate AUD$185 per night
- Standard Resort – Twin (2 double beds) including buffet breakfast for 2 people at the rate AUD$200 per night
Once a request has been received, Reservations staff will contact the participant requesting the accommodation and seek credit card information to guarantee the room booking.
Accommodation for CSSM/CoEPP students and staff is being organised directly; local students and staff should please contact the CSSM office to discuss booking their accommodation.
Complimentary Wifi is available throughout the Novotel Cairns complex except in the hotel rooms. There is a cost for Wifi in hotel rooms of AUD$10 per person for a 24 hour period but this can be waived if the hotel guest joins the Accor Hotels loyalty program. There is no cost to join the loyalty program "Le Club" and this can be done prior to arrival by going to www.accorhotels.com/loyalty or you may join on arrival at the Novotel Cairns.
