14th Australian Computer Conference for Seniors

We know that Australia’s ‘tyranny of distance’ is a problem for some people, however, Sydney is a lovely place to visit in November.

Even if you have never been to a conference before, go along and enjoy two days of excellent learning and sharing of ideas with like-minded people from all over our wonderful country at the Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association’s (ASCCA) 14th Australian Computer Conference for Seniors. It will be held on 13–14  November 2012 at Rydges World Square Hotel, Pitt St, Sydney.

There are various reasons why the ASCCA conferences are so enjoyable, however, it is the relevance and variety of the content, the suitability of the venue, the careful planning and the success in keeping the cost affordable that seem to be the top reasons people return year after year. Then, of course, there will be a wonderful sit-down lunch each day in the dining room.

The Hon. Susan Ryan AO, Australia’s very busy and supportive Age Discrimination Commissioner, Australian Human Rights Commission will be a keynote speaker, talking about Building on the successes of the Seniors Computer Clubs: how we can take it to the world.

Another keynote speaker, Cora Num – founder of the CoraWeb: Websites for Genealogists site, will also give you the benefit of her enormous expertise in the area of Genealogy by sharing, The way I work: Then and Now so you can learn to get the most from your computers and technology for your family history research. Then Cora will be joined by her talented husband David during one of the interesting concurrent afternoon sessions to ask; Am I smart enough for my smartphone? They will offer many tips to help seniors easily catch up with their phone’s amazing technology.
