As we enter a new year, conferences are still being affected by the impact of Coronavirus [COVID-19]. Many have changed to either virtual conferences [Online, Zoom, Livestream, ... ], or hybrid formats with a combination of face-to-face and virtual presentations. Difficulties with overseas travel have caused us not to include a number of conferences that may previously have been considered for inclusion. In the current climate, you should also monitor potential selections to ensure they remain viable.

These 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.
