Held at the Sofitel Melbourne, 25 Collins Street, Melbourne in the Fitzroy Ballroom, Thursday 11 August to Friday 12 August 2011

China's rising power has complicated the strategic relationship between Australia and the US and has prompted difficult questions about the future of the alliance. It is in the interests of both Australia and the US to have a clear and open dialogue on this critical challenge so that each can understand the other's motivations and reasoning. At the same time, it is also necessary to understand Chinese views in order to accurately assess the implications of China's rise for the Australia-US relationship.
