FROM rank amateurs to seasoned "surfers", there will be something for computer users at all levels at the Australian Technology Conference for Seniors in November.

Organised by the Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association, the conference has an impressive line-up of speakers, including representatives from global technology giants Microsoft and Google.

Those attending will also hear about the NBN, get hints on safely searching the internet from special guest speaker Leonie Smith "The Cyber Safety Lady", team up to play Google Trivia, learn about the importance of planning to meet retirement goals, find out how to write a memorable memoir and discover the high-tech assistive technology available to help make seniors' lives easier, safer and more enjoyable.

One of Australia's cutting-edge commentators on lifestyle technology, Charlie Brown, is sure to prove a hit with conference-goers, and there will be plenty of information to help seniors identify and avoid scams.

ASCCA president Nan Bosler said the jam-packed program offers something for everyone.

The winners of the ASCCA Digital Photography Competition will be announced during the conference.

The venue is Rydges World Square Hotel in Pitt Street, Sydney, on November 13-14.
