Vanessa and Adam tried to convince the Astronomical Society of Australia to hold their 2024 meeting as an “online first” meeting. The proposal was rejected but “online first” was in principle encouraged for the future, requiring more input on details. Contributions from A4E outside of Australia are searched to get input. Input from social sciences and psychology is would be strongly welcome. It seems that the biggest challenge is to have a proper replacement for “coffee breaks” and dinners.
