2019 Melbourne Conference - Presentations

We have captured the presentations in a number of formats.  Invited speakers were recorded, and the videos have (will) be uploaded to youtube.com.  Where we had slide presentations the original slide deck and the PDF version are available.  For the "shared experiences" sessions we've produced notes that summarize the discussions and common themes.
