The 10th TechNet Conference in 2009 involves a joint collaboration of all Western Australian Universities: Curtin University of Technology , Edith Cowan University , Murdoch University , Notre Dame University and The University of Western Australia .
The conference will be held in the University Club, UWA on 25-27 November 2009.

Presentations may encompass activities in teaching, research, management and infrastructure support across a wide range of disciplines including, but not limited to science, health, medicinal, engineering, creative arts and occupational health and safety.
