The paper copies are now out of print but it is now possible to download the two main volumes in pdf form.Since the original papers were submitted in hard copy these pdf volumes are scanned versions of the original pages and are therefore not searchable, but they print clearly and will give you/students/other colleagues a means by which to access some or all of the conference papers.

*The following link will take you to the eprint repository for the two volumes:* http://repository.unimelb.edu.au/10187/2812
