The Australian Institute of Physics (AIP) runs a biennial congress, which in 2022 is being held in Adelaide at the Convention Centre, approximately 10 minutes walk from the University of Adelaide campus hosting KOALA.

In 2022, AIP is running concurrently with the ANZCOP and WSOF conference series.

KOALA 2022 is not affiliated with these joint conferences, but has been planned to allow travelling participants to attend both if desired. Attendees of KOALA are welcome to stay in the accommodation for the Friday night (December 9th), checking out December 10th (Saturday morning) before moving over to their AIP/ANZCOP accommodation on December 11th.
