The IEEE Victorian Section has partnered with BuzzConf to help promote the exciting event. The conference will be held from 25-27th November at the Phoenix Park, Ballan, Victoria.

BuzzConf looks like a cutting edge tech conference… and it is! A cutting edge, technology, futurism, and innovation conference, where all participants and presenters spend the whole weekend together in a scenic campground rather than in a stuffy conference centre.


Think ‘Burning Man’ – but instead of a desert and hippies, you’re in a green field with 3D-printed Robot Spiders!
