Cambridge Dictionary

Conferences are still being affected by the impact of Coronavirus [COVID-19]. Some conferences now appear to be continuing, others postponed, some cancelled. Some have changed to virtual conferences [Online, Zoom, Live stream, ... ], others have opted to have a combination of face-to-face and virtual presentations. There are indications of this in current [and past] listings. These are conferences we know about. We will continue to update changes as we are made aware of them. We regret to say, however, we can give no absolute degree of accuracy, but will continue to try and be as accurate as possible over the remainder of the year [and beyond ?].

Conferences re-scheduled within 2020 will have a comment like this included. It indicates the original date, change to venue and any other details required.

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. Note many conferences late in 2020 and into 2021 have now adopted virtual presentation of some form. In light of the current status, it is suggested that you monitor any still indicating face-to-face conferences - some may have to undergo 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.
