We are pleased to present the Hobart lecture program for 2020. As usual, there is something for everyone and everything of value and interest to inquiring minds of all persuasions.
We would also like to announce a change to the session time for the Hobart lectures. It has been decided to hold the lectures on Sunday afternoons at 3 pm (except where otherwise indicated). We hope that you will all find this convenient and an enlightening way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
