Abstract

We report on the first joint Australia–ESO conference since the start of the Strategic Partnership. The conference was supported by ESO, the Australian Academy of Science (under a research grant from Elizabeth & Frederick White), the Australian Government Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, the Independent Research Fund Denmark, Macquarie University, the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research, CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science (CASS), and Astronomy Australia Limited. The scientific organising committee (SOC) took several measures to tackle unconscious bias while preparing an exciting programme with good gender balance and greater representation from early career researchers. We detail our approach here with the aim of helping organisers of future conferences.
