Due to uncertainties around COVID-19 and travel ban to Australia, sadly, we made the hard decision to skip APSSS in February 2021.
We are closely monitoring the situation to hopefully run our annual event later in 2021. Further updates will be provided on this website.
A 4-day event with hands-on experience in the class using open-source software; and a wrap-up workshop led by industry
