The symposium is intended to be a day of active discussion where you will have the opportunity to engage with other leading thinkers and contribute your perspective on a range of themes.

In preparation, have a look at the materials on the site
  • Review the mindmaps contained on the Theme Information page for each of the themes to familiarise yourself with the topics that may be discussed
  • Visit the site prior to attending the symposium for updates on provocateurs
  • Consider which table you would like to choose for each theme. Look at the topics that the provocateurs are covering and have in mind 2 or 3 possible topics for the day in case your first choice of table is already filled on the day.
  • Consider and prepare your responses to the discussion themes to ensure that your perspective is represented on the day.
  • Add any comments or ideas you have re the wiki and Symposium to the Comments & Questions page.
  • If you are new to wikis you may like to check out the About Wikis page.

Provocateur Sessions:

A number of participants have been asked to prepare a short provocative presentation to introduce particular topics within each theme. Updates on the provocateurs and their topics will appear under each theme. Click to view a list of the provocateur sessions.

This space will be used throughout the day as a repository for the discussion and other outputs from the sessions. We plan to capture as much as possible electronically by the end of the day (so we can work on the reports asap).

Tags and Sharing

We'll be using the hash tag sictassy to tweet about the Symposium and would encourage others to use this tag also. This tag will also be used for any photos or other media taken on the day.


There will be 8 tables with a laptop and 22" monitor and approximately 6-8 people at each. Wireless bandwidth is provided but if you have your own dongle that will assist greatly.

Please bring your business cards and be in the draw for a fun prize!

What happens afterwards?

Once completed, any reports from the Symposium will be made available to you on the SICTAS information page.
