Cambridge Dictionary

Conferences are still being affected by the impact of Coronavirus [COVID-19]. A majority have now changed to virtual conferences [Online, Zoom, Live stream, ... ], others have opted for a hybrid combination of face-to-face and virtual presentations. Some do not appear to have finalised a choice. These are only 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 every effort will be made to be as accurate as possible during this period.

We have omitted some conferences being held in the next few months. Information at this time only indicates a face-to-face format. These are conferences held overseas and currently there is no option to travel internationally. We will maintain a separate listing of these and if either travel restrictions or formats change and lead time is reasonable, these will be added as we become aware of the changes.

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.
