We are now preparing for the next biennial FACTA conference which will be held in Adelaide, South Australia in June 2019. This meeting will likely commence on a Sunday evening and conclude on a Wednesday allowing a 3 day meeting. We are in the process of confirming the venue and exact dates (likely to be the Adelaide Convention Centre) with ICMS Australasia – our trusted conference partners. Our key note speaker for this meeting will be Dr Marc Lebeau from the FBI (Quantico, VA, USA). Marc is the current TIAFT president and has also been president of SOFT in the past as well as holding a number of key posts related to toxicology and forensic science; Marc is an accomplished speaker and members gain much from his presentations. We will have all of these details available on the website shortly.
