AHMTC 11 2018 will be held in Melbourne, Australia. Melbourne is the world's most liveable city for a sixth consecutive year in 2016, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), well-known for its coffee culture, night-life, and love of sports. It is the birthplace of Australian impressionism, Australian rules football, the Australian film and television industries, and Australian contemporary dance. It is also recognised as a UNESCO City of Literature and a major centre for street art, music and theatre. Melbourne is home to many of Australia's largest and oldest cultural institutions such as the Melbourne Cricket Ground, the National Gallery of Victoria, the State Library of Victoria, and the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Royal Exhibition Building.

The conference will be held at RMIT University's Storey Hall - a multi-function venue. It was first built as the Hibernian Hall, and remodelled as the iconic Storey Hall in 1995, when it received an ultra-modern extension, featuring geometric-shaped windows and tiles.

July marks the coolest month of the year in Melbourne, and is known for its cloudy conditions. Average day-time high temperatures around 14 degrees Celsius, and a low of 6 degrees Celsius overnight. However, Melbourne is known to have very unpredictable weather, experiencing 4 seasons in 1 day. Bringing a jacket is always a good idea!
