Welcome to OAT2022

The Grain Industry Association of Western Australia (GIWA) and the International Oat Organising Committee wishes to welcome you at the 11th international Oat Conference to be held in Perth, Western Australia from 10th to 13th October 2022.

OAT2022 will be a hybrid event; registrations can be made for in-person or for virtual attendance.

Virtual attendees can participate in all sessions in real-time and will be able to pose questions to presenters in real-time via the conference app. Virtual and in-person attendees will also be able to view videos of all sessions for 30 days from the time the videos are uploaded to the conference website (expected to be within 2 weeks of the conference close). All participants will be advised by email when videos are available. This allows those in time-zones that may make real-time participation in the Conference inconvenient, to view the entire conference proceedings at their leisure over 30 days.

In the event travel into Western Australia is restricted by the Australian or Western Australian government for COVID related reasons and you are registered to attend in-person, you may change to a virtual registration and be refunded the difference provided you notify GIWA in writing by Friday, 9th September 2022.
