HOW DO I TAKE PART?

Complete the expression of interest (EOI), which is open until Friday 19 January 2018. All EOI applications will be directed to the respective national FIU for consideration and review. Given the priority to include all ASEAN countries and Australia in each ticket type, selection will be based on opportunities to maximise international collaboration and engagement.

Subject to the results of the review, each FIU will respond to their applicants and coordinate their national delegation to attend the Codeathon in Sydney. Your respective FIU will be in touch from Monday 29 January 2018, to either confirm your application and provide further information, or notify you otherwise.
