Our 2004 Conference will be the Australasian region's premier event for lecturers, trainers and researchers concerned with all aspects of educational technology and computer mediated learning in tertiary and post school education and training. We have a splendid venue at The University of Western Australia and for those dallying a little longer, a great range of summertime activities The Conference theme, Beyond the comfort zone, expresses our intention that conference presenta-tions will go beyond the 'comfort zone' of established techniques and familiar contexts. In calling for presentations, we will seek to recognise innovative exploration of the next wave of research topics and tech-niques, and imaginative anticipation of future contexts for computers and related technologies in teaching and learning.
