Conferences are now being affected by the impact of Coronavirus [COVID-19]. Some conferences appear to be continuing, others postponed and some cancelled. You will see a number of these indicated in the current listings. These are the conferences we know about. At this stage, the only group not apparently affected are those presented online. We will continue to update any changes as we become aware of them.

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

Update checking of events has been done through to the end of October. However, with continual changes often occurring, there seems little point going further at this time. We regret to say that even with the best will, we can no longer give an absolute degree of accuracy. We will, however, continue to try and be as accurate as possible over the remainder of the year [and beyond].

Conferences have a range of descriptors. These include - conference, congress, forum, institute, round table, seminar, summit, symposium, even webinar and workshop. There are also instances where they combine with other presentations as in a joint Conference & Expo. Many variations are included.

There are multiple educational conferences 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.

Information is added as far ahead of actual dates as possible and updated where this is required.

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.
