Cambridge Dictionary

Conferences are still being affected by the impact of Coronavirus [COVID-19]. Many have become virtual conferences [Online, Zoom, Live stream, ... ], others have opted to have a hybrid combination of face-to-face and virtual presentations. Some, unfortunately, do not appear to have finalised a choice. These are the conferences we know about. We will continue to update any changes as we become aware of them. We regret to say, however, there is no absolute assurance of accuracy, though we will continue to be as accurate as possible over future months. You will find the number of changes found in updating links in the last few days has been quite amazing.

We have omitted some conferences to be held early in 2021, as information available indicates a face-to-face format only. These are overseas with no option to travel there at this time. We will, however, maintain a separate listing of these and if there is a possibility of attending either face-to-face or through a change of presentation method, these will be added as we become aware of such changes. We have also removed a number of conferences after reading numerous concerns about their validity..

Please note : We normally update a number of pages on the first day of each month. This is not the case in January. As far as possible we included all known January conferences prior to Christmas and the Conference pages updates again today, 17 January 2021. Normal service will be resumed as from 1 February 2021.

Multiple educational conferences occur virtually every day. These cover almost every educational topic and level.

Pages list conferences and related events at regional, state/territory, national and international level. Each listing contains date, title, a brief comment and the venue. They are listed in date order.

Australian conferences/events are given priority but not to the exclusion of relevant conferences, especially in the Asia-Pacific region, but also in other parts of the world. This is likely to increase with many international conferences moving online, either partially or fully.

Information is added as far ahead of actual dates as possible and updated where this is required. In light of the ongoing situation, it is strongly suggested that you monitor any still indicating face-to-face conferences - some may have undergone change.

The Past Conference Page lists conferences that have been completed. These are only listed by date and title.
Each monthly listing is only maintained for a period of six months to allow access to papers and reports.

Use individual links below to access specific listings for each month.
